-> WE EMBRACE INDIE FILMMAKERS! An independent film festival, hosted at an independent theatre
Croydon International Film Festival is - just like the films it screens - small, independent and eye-opening.
For the 6th time, our short factual film and animation festival, run by volunteers on the outskirts of London hopes to bewitch film veterans and newcomers alike, just as it has since it was founded by award-winning filmmaker Donna Lipowitz and the artist Ben Bridges.
"Life moves fast...and life is weird." Two truths summed up by the films we screen: sub-10 minute factual films or animations, often with a focus on quirky, true stories.
The CroydonIFF is run by Neil Ridulfa, host of the Croydon Film Festival events since 2013 and a fantastic team of volunteers. Originally an audience member, Neil found that he simply had to be involved in this entertaining and uplifting event, and hopes 2019 can be its best year ever.
The venue, The Front Room in Croydon is a brand new, purpose-built, independent theatre which we are very excited to be working with in their debut season.
The focus for the festival is to make it an entertaining afternoon of films. The local audience in Croydon has embraced the festival since it began with a full house at every screening so far.
>> The festival will be on a Saturday 7th September 2019. Exact time to be announced (usually afternoon to early evening) so stay tuned.
