We are one of the UKโ€™s fastest-growing independent film festivals! We are proud to announce that we are sponsored by FilmFreeway and will be screening at the Everyman Bristol Cinema. Since we started in 2016 we have had submissions from over 120 countries. We pride ourselves on being an international film festival. We aspire to promote, recognize and support independent filmmakers throughout the world by hosting a variety of awards to provide the best opportunities for filmmakers and help them receive their deserved recognition. We welcome submissions from a range of genres including short films, documentaries, features, animations, and screenplays. ๐–๐ก๐ฒ ๐๐ˆ๐…๐…? ๐ŸŽฌ โ€ขWe aim to create a community of independent film-makers and an environment where we can celebrate independent film and our submittersโ€™ creations. โ€ขFor each event, we provide networking booklets that include information about each winner and ways to contact them.

They rate each submission on 10 different categories including cinematography, writing, pacing, and creativity. This helps them decide which submissions make it to the final stage where there will be jury group viewings to make sure we only pick the best quality submissions. We look forward to viewing your creations and hope to meet you at our 5th annual celebration of independent film.
