The World Foot­bag Cham­pi­onships is not only a pro­fes­sional sports tour­na­ment aimed at choos­ing the best foot­bag kick­ers in the world. Ten years ago the first Video Contest was held in Helsinki, Finland, and as tradition demands it, we will of course bring it back in Copenhagen. On wednesday we will take a break from the live action and spend a cinematic evening watching the best footbag videos from the most innovative filmmakers, made for the occasion.

We wel­come every­body to participate, so get your cam­eras rollin’ or browse your archives for some good foot­bag footage for your Video Con­test entry. Each video must be an original production and cannot have been shown anywhere before.

Dead­line for sub­mis­sions is July 1st. All sub­mis­sions will be checked before screen­ing and in case of too many  submissions, only a selec­tion will be shown in the screen­ing. Con­tact Asmus Helms ( for submission instruc­tions.

Videos will be judged dur­ing the screen­ing and a top three will be announced in the after-party.
