KINO DER KUNST, a unique worldwide combination of film festival and art exhibition, will hold its third edition from April 19 to April 23, 2017. Movie theatres and museums all over Munich will present the International Competition as well as supporting programmes, artists’ talks, symposia and multi-channel installations. KINO DER KUNST investigates the connection between visual art and cinema; its programmatic focus lies on how cinematographic artists approach fiction and narration in relationship to contemporary reality.

We invite visual artists from all over the world to submit their recent works to the International Competition. All entries must reveal  an innovative  approach to the various forms of cinematographic narration and demonstrate a high technical level. The films must have been produced after January 1, 2015.

An international jury of artists and curators will award two main prizes totalling € 20,000. An audience award of 5,000 will also be  decided. Only single-channel narrative works  by visual  artists will be accepted, but they can be of any length. There is no  admission fee. Films may only be submitted online via a special link on After entering your data  (address, film title, credits,  director’s biography, synopsis, photo materials, technical details) and successfully uploading your film, you will receive a registration number.

Submission deadline is November 15, 2016.
