Call for Entries

We look forward to receiving new entries for the next “Globale Mittelhessen” taking place from 26.  January - 4. February 2018.


1. General Information

„Globale Mittelhessen“ is a globalisation-critical film festival that is being organised by Motivés e.V. as well as various fair trade shops and local Attac groups from the Mittelhessen region.

The festival is primarily addressed to independent filmmakers working non-commercially.
For us, technical sophistication of the movies matters less than a solid selection and presentation of the specific contents.

The film festival revolves around the theme of globalisation. To name some core themes:  labour, human rights, migration, environment, crisis, climate change, economy, poverty, social movements and resistance, and positive alternatives.
