This is the major cultural event of Pacifica, in which we all will determine, who can create the best films, who has the best series and who is leaving everyone in awe with their music.
The Southern Gate Festival is a cultural event taking place in Südtor, Gianatla, sponsored mainly by the Gianlucian government, namely the Ministry of Culture, the audio streaming service Audit and the video streaming service Risa. Since 1986 it has awarded the best Gianlucian pieces of media on an annual basis, as of 2021 even from the entire rest of the world too. Be welcomed to share with the world your creative works, earn the international respect and recognition you deserve!
The festival officially consists of two competitions: The film festival “Golden Gates” and the Pacivision Song Contest. As of 2022 both competitions are held separately with Pacivision happening earlier in the year and the Golden Gates being awarded at the end of a year. The Golden Gate ceremony is traditionally seen as the main event of the Southern Gate Festival.
During the film festival the best films and series of Pacifica will be awarded “The Golden Gates” in the categories “Best Film”, “Best Series”, “Best Advertisement” and “Best Director”. Each trophy is endowed to One Million Gianlucian Tacks (1 Tack = 1 Euro IRL). Furthermore each film or series, which has won at least one trophy will be added to the films and series Risa offers in its international line-up.
Each nation may submit one film and/or one series. One more film or series may be submitted, if it is a co-production between two countries without the same roleplayer behind it!
This means, you can submit three entries at max (1 film + 1 series + 1 co-production with another roleplayer, which counts as a co-produced entry for both roleplayers)!
To submit a film/series, please fill out the form below. It has to be an original piece!

After the end of the submission deadline, an IC topic on the festival will be opened. It will include red carpet roleplay, interviews and the award ceremony. Also you will be able to give your votes in the OOC topic in the following categories:

You may participate with multiple nations, if you control multiple nations. Please be aware, that you are only allowed to vote with one nation though and that you may not vote for your own submissions!
Individual roleplayers may hold a laudatory speech for one of the categories in consultation with me.
