Best Non-European Dramatic Feature
Sponsor:No Sponsor

Category Rules

Films should be independent in spirit and original in perspective. Open to all non-European feature films made with less than 50% participation by a major studio or television broadcaster. Films may be submitted in any language, however must have subtitles in English except if the film is in English it must have French subtitles. Appropriate subtitles are required to ensure accurate judging abilities. A synopsis of no more than 180 characters, in English and French, a screenshot from the film and a short director's biography also in English and French are required upon submission.

Previous winners include 'Flytrap' (USA), ‘The Preacher’s Daughter’ (USA), ‘Motivational Growth’ (USA), ‘The Forest is Red’ (USA), ‘The Last Confession of Alexander Pearce’ (Australia); many past entrants in this category have gone on to secure distribution deals.

Being able to use parts of the film or having a trailer/preview of the film would be helpful for promotional purposes within the festival and our events leading up to it.

“To show our film in Paris, the birthplace of cinema - as a filmmaker, this is like Mecca. Being able to show film at ÉCU and have such a wonderful reception and to have people really respond to he film, is a dream come true.”
- Michelle Mower, “The Preacher’s Daughter”, winner of ÉCU 2014
