Imagine Film Competition

Would you like to create your own character with special costumes and spectacular masks or surreal styling? Then this is your chance. Join our film competition and win fantastic prizes! 

The Imagine Film Festival theme of the 2017 edition is Fantastic Fashion. In a wide ranging and varied theme program, Imagine will focus on the role costumes and styling play in creating a fantastic illusion. Every fantastic film genre (such as science fiction, fantasy, horror) has its own dress code and styling. Think of  futuristic (space) suits in science fiction, iconic superhero costumes, gothic horror for TV series like Penny Dreadful or the amazing costumes in Game of Thrones.

Two fantastic  prizes for the winner

The winner can spend a day at visual effects studio Planet X FX. Consider, for example, a combination of advice while preparing to shoot your next film and help with the post-production. Or consult them about something else in the area of  visual effects.
That Planet X FX is not just any old effects studio, can be seen in this visual effects breakdown.

Camalot Audiovisual Facilities offers a whopping €2,500,-  towards camera equipment rental! This amount will be valid for two years.
