Category Rules

This category is open to all candidates who have created their FIRST EVER short film AND made after May 2012. ÉCU - The European Independent Film Festival will waive the submission fee and guarantees a screening of the first ever made film in the festival's special ÉCU FIRSTS screening area. For this to happen, candidates must attend the festival, reserve screening times and have an audience of at least 10 people.



ÉCU - The European Independent Film Festival is giving first-time filmmakers an opportunity to show their films for free in Paris, France during the time of the festival. This opportunity is only available to 100 first-time filmmakers. Please submit as quickly as possible to be considered. Subtitles in English and French if the film is in English would be helpful to get as many viewers as possible to attend our screening.

Please be aware that the ÉCU FIRSTS category has NO AWARD and the films participating in this category are not considered to be a part of ÉCU's "Official Selection." While the festival will able to help publicize all the films considered in ÉCU FIRSTS category, filmmakers will need to be the primary source of publicity to get the required number of audience members to the screening.
