EUROPEAN COMPETITION

Go Debut European Film Festival is only film festival in the world that introduces European film debutants through competition programs that are solely based on short film formats.
Go Debut EFF considers film a 'debut film' when director's previous films (if any made,) have not been awarded nor specially mentioned at any festival. Entries will be considered for following European competition categories:
The Innovative films - length 1-5 min.
The Short Film - length 6-15 min.
The Novellfilm - length 20-30 min.

The Innovative Films and The Short Films represent audiovisual short form categories that are comparable with poems, songs, jokes, short stories, etc in literature.
The Novellfilm is structured like a mini feature film, making this only short film genre to use when the director wants to move on to full length feature films.
The mission of the GoDebut EFF is to introduce to the world new talented European directors, both as makers of short films as well as potential feature film makers.
