The Siren competition
The Siren award is Fantastisk Film Festival’s international competition. In 2017 the prize had a little break but now it’s back!
Fantastic film is much more than blood, we love our blood, but the most important thing is, we love good stories. Stories that makes us feel, stimulats our imagination, makes us think and wonder and dream. Film is one of many medias that allow us to do so and we want to celebrate this with this award.
The films chosen for the Siren competition has been carefully selected by the feaute film programming group of Lund and consists of 6 films from all around the world and reflects the many corners and creeks of fantastic film.
This year we are happy to announce the winning film will receive a cash price of 500 euros.
The Méliès competition is organised by The European Fantastic Film Festivals Federation and aims to promote European film and filmmaking.
With some 20 festivals represented, on the European continent as well as supporting members in Asia and North-America, and a joint audience of approximately 600.000 spectators, the European Fantastic Film Festivals Federation (EFFFF) has become one of the most powerful tools to promote the originality and creativity of the European fantasy film industry.
With the objective of supporting European fantastic cinema artistically and economically, the EFFFF has created the Mélès d’argent and the Méliès d’Or Competition for Best European Fantastic Film.
All winners of the Méliès d’argent will compete for the Méliès d’Or at Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival
