*** CIFF is IMDb recognized and one of the few festivals that doesn't ask you to pay a separate fee for each category. ***
!!! CIFF has moved. !!!
We are now located in Los Angeles, California.
Creation International Film Festival (CIFF) is an international film and screenplay-writing festival designed specifically for the indie filmmaker who’s tired of being overlooked by all the other festivals that seem to cater only to big budget productions. Scanning the endless list of festivals not knowing where to gamble your money is frustrating. In most cases you end up with nothing to show for your hard work and limited budget.
At CIFF we’ve kept our entry fee low and offer one of the highest number of award categories, along with an option to have your film or script reviewed. We do give multiple awards.
We know that getting a review of your film or script is a gamble at best. You pay a high price and end up with something that is useless and disappointing. At CIFF, you will get an in depth review by an industry expert who takes the time to read or view your work carefully. You will be satisfied with the review and the price is very reasonable.
CIFF is now headquartered in California, though our international judging panel is scattered around the globe. The festival runs in 4 quarters. Once a year, in March, we will hold our annual Creation Festival Gala where we will screen the best of our submissions from the 4 quarters in an online presentation. The audience will choose their favorite and a beautiful CIFF Best in Show trophy will be awarded.
Entries are accepted as follows:
Winter Selection (November– January)
Spring Selection (February – April)
Summer Selection (May– July)
Autumn Selection (August– October).
The sixth annual Creation Festival Gala will be held in March, 2022.
Finalists will be notified in February 2022.
The entry deadline for our next selection is January 31 and the winners will be announced at the end of February 2022.
