ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
When it comes to Independent Films, We have had many successful years in the industry.

We have been a part of independent film distribution, independent movie making and the management of other International Film Festivals. We are a family run business which we started in 2009, we currently have over 40 films in the market and have helped set up and supported five other film festivals, while running 3 ourselves. What started as a family passion has now become our life’s work.

Every year many of our participants and visitors tell us that highlight of the event is the socializing VIP dinner held on the first day of the festival, the VIP evening events held every evening and of course our Awards night.

We also give budding new producers and directors the chance to get some funding towards their next movie.

Complementing the excitement of seeing and meeting the
independent movie makers and their films at the festival. We have
our educational programs, ‘Pitch and Toss’ and talks from people
in the industry. This program allows us to share with members
and visitors the skills, joys and pitfalls in the success of bringing
your vision to the silver screen.

We are able to provide our guests with a taste of what even the biggest movie makers experienced as they tried to introduce their films into the world. Telling their story has been a vital part of the success of our festivals.
If you have taken the full VIP package you will be given breackfast every morning and in the evenings you will enjoy dinner and entertainment at our specialy seleced VIP venues. During the Day you can enjoy the city or watch as many films or go to any seminars you wish during the festival for free.

We can't wait to see you at our festival and look forward to chatting to you about your film and future projects. If your just here to enjoy the festival we hope to sit down and debate the many aspects of the films and see your choice for film of the festival.
