Application for next year's Shanghai International Film Festival opened online today, but applicants will be up against stiff competition.

The last festival, held earlier this year, received a record 2,528 entries from 106 countries and regions, of which only 500 were selected for exhibition in the festival's "Panorama" section.

Some also competed in the Golden Goblet Awards and the Asian New Talent Awards competition.

From today, filmmakers can apply online at the festival's official website — deadline for the Asian New Talent Awards is March 31, 2018, while that for Golden Goblet Awards and "Panorama" hopefuls is April 15.

Officials said that they will provide filmmakers with a bigger platform to showcase their talent next year, and that outstanding film productions will be recommended to other major film festivals such as Venice International Film Festival, Tokyo International Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival.

The 21st Shanghai International Film Festival will be held from June 16 to 25, 2018.
