English subtitles

Each film submitted to Blacksphere film festival must contain English subtitles (even if the movie is English spoken), as we are an international festival and we will target the online part of the festival also outside of English-speaking countries, where not everyone understands the English language perfectly. It would also be nicer for disabled persons to see visible text.

Therefore, English subtitles are required even if the movie is spoken in English. (Preferably embedded subtitles in the movie. Or less preferably .srt file or .vtt but we are able to handle .txt as well.) Delivery of English subtitles is part of the rules of our festival. Since providing ENG subtitles is strictly in Blacksphere rules, submitted movies will not be included in Blacksphere main competition for prizes if submitters fail to deliver us English subtitles. But it is not going to be disqualified, it is still going to be streamed for the Blacksphere online part for 7 days (if chosen) and according to the number of views and quality it still can make it to the final live event.

Only exceptions are movies without dialogues.

It is possible to make english subtitles for your movie. If you are interested in this service, please contact us via [email protected]
