Three of Tempo’s national competitions are now open for submissions: Tempo Documentary Award, Tempo Short Award och New Doc.

Due to the current pandemic we will make an exception in the rules for Tempo Documentary Award. For the festival 2021 we will accept submissions that have already had their theatrical premier. The films must however be produced in April 2020 at the earliest, and cannot have had their tv or streaming premiere.

Here are the rules for the competitions and links (in Swedish):
