Call for participation


entzaubert queer d.i.y. filmfestival collective training camp
4. – 7. August 2016

This year entzaubert will be holding a special event over 4 days, diving deep into the archives, to increase the visibility of one of the world’s few DIY self-organized queer film archives.

we invite you to take a look at our archives, to work practically on maintaining the films, with the goal of developing an accessible self-organized sustainable independent DIY queer film archive.

through this collective training camp we hope to find fresh perspectives on the archives: reflecting on film submissions, selection process and programming; exchanging about DIY collective work practices, distribution and economies – through hands-on as well as conceptual workshops, panels and discussions.

We are looking for people with specific experiences to take part.

1. Filmmakers to share their methods of DIY distribution.

2. DIY organizers who would like to participate on panels about, for example:
….. collective work practices
….. DIY, self-organizing, economies, funding
….. practical oriented tools for conflict resolution

We are happy to read any proposal if you have other ideas.

We especially encourage and would like people to join and be a part of entzaubert who experience racism, and other forms of oppression such as; trans*phobia, misogyny, fatphobia, ableism, classism, and their intersections.

Please send us a paragraph about yourself and how you‘d like to participate.

Deadline: 20th July 2016

*** Upcoming Festival (summer 2016)! ***

The entzaubert queer international diy noncommercial film festival has been around for nearly a decade!!!

In 2007, we had our first festival on the banks of the Spree. It was a small festival organized by people on the project group of the queer wagenplatz Kanal (at the time known as Schwarzer Kanal). There was no selection of films, ALL of the films submitted were screened! Over the years, entzaubert has grown, and now filmmakers all over the world contact us everyday to send us films. We have gathered a large archive of film submissions, not all of which we have had the chance to screen. So, we have decided that for this year’s festival (in the summer of 2016), instead of taking new submissions, we will dive deep into our archive, to increase the visibility of one of the world’s few DIY self-organized queer film archives, take a look at the films we’ve gathered with newer perspectives, and put together a retrospective, along with workshops and discussions, e.g.; filmmaking, archiving, diy practices, organizing a festival, etc.

A call-out for the 2017, 10th anniversary festival, will take place this summer.

entzaubert 2016 needs you!

*entzaubert is a diy film festival that has been taking place in Berlin since 2007*

Our organizing team is looking for new members who are interested in collective decision making, learning by doing, collaboration strategies, creating spaces for diy non-commercial art and culture, communicating honestly about capacities, skills and tasks, handling conflicts and disagreements responsibly and with care for each other, and having fun at working hard.
You are invited to contribute, participate and help to make this year’s festival happen!

We‘re especially looking for people with experience with:
• PROJECT MANAGEMENT (scheduling, email communication, setting timetables etc)
• WEBSITE (programing, updating, including online forms for our film submissions)
• FINANCIAL MATTERS (cost accounting, financial planning and of course funding)
…if you have time, energy and enthusiasm but no experience you‘re also very welcome!

Please download, fill out our FORM and email it to by February 29.
More info about entzaubert you can find HERE.

Please note: we‘ll release a specific call out for programming, subtitling, and for the volunteers (during the festival) LATER ON.

………..come and be part of it!…………
