November has flown by. The poppies that we wore with remembrance and the flags that flew high down the Champs d’Elysees have quickly been replaced with twinkling lights and holly as we prepare for December.

Time moves so quickly that ÉCU can’t believe we’ve already reached the Early Bird Submission Deadline on November 18th. If you send us your films before this date you will benefit from a discounted entry fee and more time for your film to be promoted through the festival’s website.

Our ÉCU Interns can tell you why you should submit your film. Watch the 10 reasons to Submit to ÉCU 2013.
Is this deadline too early? Don’t worry. The regular deadline for film submission is December 16.

ÉCU has been busy watching your films but we’ve also been busy on the road! We recently spent a week in Beijing, China where we screened 9 of the best independent films of the ÉCU 2011 and 2012 official selection. The screenings were held on the 3rd of November at The Western Academy of Beijing. Our trip was such a success that we hope that this is just the beginning of the European Independent Film Festival in China.

Next stop, Jordan! On November 25-27 ÉCU will be traveling to the country of Jordan for a 3-day film screening. Keep up to date with our next adventure through

From extending our reach to countries like China and Jordan, the 8th annual European Independent Film Festival is shaping up to be the best one yet!
