Given the fact that there are so many different techniques and visions how the films should be made, Video Art Association Videomedeja has decided to invite several filmschools from all over the World and combine them in one interesting competition – LUNARTIS.
The main reason for this is to get these different theories together on one place and introduce them to young future filmmakers from different continents and cultures to get acquainted with this diversity of film making.
LUNARTIS is NOT just another student film competition with hundreds of movies and only schools invited by Videomedeja may participate in LUNARTIS. Main rule is ONE SCHOOL – ONE FILM. We are looking only for the Best students filmmakers representing the Best Film Schools from each continent. Each participating school will select only one graduate or undergraduate thesis film to represent them and these films are automatically accepted.
So far these film schools have participated on LUNARTIS competition:
AFDA (The South African School of Motion Picture Medium and Live Performance), South Africa
FTII (Film and Television Institute of India), India
The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, China
AFTRS (Australian Film Television & Radio School), Australia
Universidad del Cine, Argentina
USC – School of Cinematic Arts, USA
EFC (European Film College), Denmark
ECAM (Escuela de Cinematografía y del Audiovisual de Madrid), Spain
Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg, Germany
Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia, Italy

EICAR (The International Film and Television School of Paris), France
LFS (The London Film School), United Kingdom
The National Film School of Denmark, Denmark

Our desire is to progress and improve our list and we will do our best that in the future this group is expanded with a couple of new prestigious film academies.
