The Cinema Agency of the Republic of Azerbaijan extended the document submission deadline for the film project competition
The Cinema Agency of the Republic of Azerbaijan (ARKA), under the Ministry of Culture, announced a competition for film projects on July 18 this year. The aim is to support the development of the cinematographic field, promote cinematographic activities, enrich the experience of local filmmakers, facilitate the creation of films that promote national, moral, and universal values, and support the private sector involved in this field.
The competition accepts projects in various categories, such as films, commercial films, author (art) films, debut films, and student films, to be produced through state orders by independent production centers and other legal entities engaged in cinematography. The deadline for project submissions was set for September 15, 2023.
However, taking into account that the competition of this scale is being held for the first time in the country, that participants need time to prepare high-quality film projects, and the importance of involving more legal and physical entities in film activities in terms of the development of the national film industry, the deadline for the first stage of the competition (project submissions) has been extended to October 1, 2023.
