Independent filmmakers and creatives face many challenges; the large competition for viewers’ attention, finding funding and getting a distributor can only be overcome by the industry coming together and creating opportunities for those who need and deserve it. Our festival’s aim is to create an opportunity for filmmakers to show their work to the right audience at our intimate and relaxing events, and get one step closer to success by receiving recognition for their art.
Year after year we are praised by filmmakers for the opportunities that unlock upon entering and participating in our festival. Workshops, guest speakers, film premieres, financing talks, director Q&As, film screenings, networking events, industry professional panels and the chance to socialise with like-minded people will undoubtedly aid in future filmmaking ventures. This is perfect for either an individual seeking funding for an unproduced screenplay or a finished production seeking distribution – we are able to cater to all. All of this is neatly wrapped in a few days showcasing films that concludes with our spectacular awards ceremony gala dinner, where the winners from each of our categories walk away with a prestigious Film Festival trophy award, in recognition of filmmakers’ talents and achievements.
