We are now accepting submissions for the 27th Astra Film Festival edition and are looking forward to seeing your films. Astra Film Festival seeks documentaries with a strong presence of the filmmaker's point of view both in form and content. Cinematographic qualities, and the honesty of the filmmakers approach to their subjects are highly valued. Creative documentaries and auteur films are especially welcome. Astra Film Festival regards documentary cinema as a mind-broadening medium at the forefront of the process of scrutinizing the human condition and praises those documentaries which show deep involvement in exploring how individual people and communities cope with the circumstances of today's world.
