The program of hungry eyes festival consists entirely of works in the fields of short film, performance and installation art, which are submitted via an internationally spread Open Call. A selection is then made from the submitted works, which will be shown during the festival in Gießen.

We curate the program collectively. This means that all team members view all submissions and then put together a program in a joint exchange process with several discussion rounds. At the end of the selection process, all members of hungry eyes festival should be confident in our program.

When deciding which works to show, we focus on content and aesthetic aspects, an experimental approach to the medium film, as well as the overall composition of the works as a program. Thus, even during the basic selection process, attention is paid to the interaction of the works and to thematic arcs and references in regards to aesthetics or content which arise between the individual works. 

Pragmatic decisive factors are that the applications are complete and that the spatial and temporal requirements are met. We are of course also bound by our financial plan with the limited financial resources available to us for each submission category. We do not pay a flat fee per production, but for each artist involved. We are always grateful for questions and suggestions regarding the selection process.

We distinctly position ourselves against any discriminatory content with regard to origin, skin colour, gender, sexual orientation, age or ability. Submissions with discriminatory content or statements will not be accepted, neither will solely promotional films.
