Deriving from the need, especially of the audience, but also students of the Academy of Arts in Novi Sad, "Vojvodina festival of film and video" was created in the year of 2003. Very soon, the Festival grew into Film Front Festival, which had an international character.
However, some things never changed, the core of the festival remains the same still nurturing and affirming the author artistic expression, experimentation, professionalism and enthusiasm, as well as the traditional film form. Small, intimate festival, with a steady and faithful audience from year to year only grew and the number of professional production of short films from around the world displayed in the International Selection are the testimony.
The Film Front is also the front window to the world of short film in Serbia and the region and one of the last bastions of film art Novi Sad.
Behind the Festival is Kino klub Novi Sad. Young people of Kino Klub Novi Sad, whose production has been a part of hundreds of short documentary, fiction, animated and experimental films and three feature films continue to believe that the author film has a loyal audience in Novi Sad.
The festival is now traditionally held the last weekend in October at the Cultural Center of Novi Sad and admission to all festival days is free.
The call for submissions usually opens in June and lasts until mid September. Film Front welcomes fiction, experimental, documentary and animated shorts. The films must be up to 30 minutes in length, and must be produced during the current year, or the year before. Winner of the Serbia/region selection is chosen by the professional jury, whereas the audience votes for the winner of International selection.
