The Contest 2021
The Cinéhaïku 2021 contest is open! Welcome participants!
The novelty of this edition: a theme defined each month will guide everyone’s inspiration.
Restart is the first theme.
From January to June 2021, a monthly prize of CHF 500 will be awarded to the most noticed Cinéhaïku.
Feel free to imagine your poetic film by following a simple exercise: respecting the rules of haiku by adapting them in audiovisual form. In 3 shots and no more than 30 seconds.
- Create your own Cinéhaïku while respecting the theme and the contest rules.
- Subscribe on our Instagram or the Facebook page.
