International Portrait Film Festival

Sofia, Bulgaria

Deadline

Published: 19 Jun 2024
 Has submission fees

IPFF is on the path towards its fifth edition! Once again, we will celebrate short portrait cinema and art which explores, educates, and transforms.

PHILOSOPHY

A portrait is an image heavy with meaning. Layered and multifaceted, it has a visual, psychological, material, emotional and spiritual dimension. It can be political, conceptual, poetic. Or something else.

A portrait always undergoes a transformation. It imitates and repeats life, but becomes something or someone new along the way. It changes its original subject while capturing it. Then the portrait is transformed again through the mind of every brave interpreter.

A film portrait is a soul in the form of light encountering the canvas of the white screen while pairs of eyes are staring at its vastness. It is a trace. And a reverie. It is past, present, and future intertwined.

FOCUS

The portrait is the focus of the films that will be screened at the IPFF. We are looking for portrait films that have already been completed, as well as such that will be created with the concrete idea of 'portrait'. Of a person. A group of people. An object. Something invisible, but substantial. Of the self.

WELCOME

IPFF welcomes a wide range of films and filmmakers: students, professionals, from low budget to big-scale productions, alternative and independent films by individuals and by collectives or institutions.

AIM

IPFF aspires to bring together artists and viewers who sincerely long for enrichment with art, intellectual discussion, and an experience of cinema through a new prism - that of the portrait film.

CHARACTER

IPFF is a hybrid event. A symbiosis of intriguing live encounters and memorable virtual experiences. An interweaving of portrait cinema from around the world with debates, lectures, workshops.

DREAM

We dream and imagine that the IPFF is for those who profoundly need art and excitement. And for the ones who believe in cinema’s power to change us for the better. For the unafraid to search within the screen even when it offers a strange and experimental viewpoint, or difficult questions about human rights, war and the ecological crises of our shared present.

The Santander Film Festival, with its main headquarters in Centro Botín, was born in September 2017 as a film week. Since then, it has been held every year with success in six editions and with great film professionals such as Isabel Coixet, Julio Medem, Antonio Resines, Carlos Saura and Pablo Trapero. Last year the week became a Festival, including two competitive categories, among other novelties that we will maintain in this new edition.

The Festival was born with a clear focus on creativity, entrepreneurship and youth, and these are precisely the traits that are reinforced edition after edition.

In the eighth edition we will maintain our desire to internationalize, programming a selection of the best Ibero-American films of the year, and also focusing on great film professionals to whom we will pay tribute through our retrospectives.


In addition, we will have multiple parallel activities, events and special screenings, as well as a reinforced industry section, with four meetings between professionals from the film industry, in order to address the new challenges it faces.

Like every year, the Festival acquires a strong commitment to sustainability, organizing an event to offset the carbon footprint in the Cinema Forest.
