Monday, 17 December 2018

The 16th 11mm International Football Film Festival will take place between the 21st and the 25th of March. The festival will open with a screening of the film “Nossa Chape - Our Team“. The unique story of Chapecoense -- a football club from a remote Brazilian city that miraculously qualifies for the final of the Copa Sudamericana, only to face destruction when the plane flying them to the game crashes, killing the entire team except for three players. US filmmakers Jeff & Michael Zimbalist will present their film to the festival audience in Berlin.

The festival presents more than 70 films which shine a light on the cultural and historical background of football.

Film makers and production companies from around the world are invited to submit their football films to the world’s leading football film festival to win one of the awards! Close of entries: January 15th 2019
