MISSION & OBJECTIVE

Mission is simple: Promote filmmakers and screenwriters.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

Lots of films are rejected on film festivals. One of the reasons is that there are too many submissions. Producing a film is one thing. The next step is submitting your film to film festivals. Then you realize that nothing is really happening. Giving filmmakers and screenwriters the opportunity to be noticed is our priority. Distributors love films screened on Festivals. They love them even better when they are awarded.
