We are a Truly Independent Film Festival (tm).
Our goal is to provide an outlet for projects that represent the Independent Film Maker, their vision, views, and artistic interpretation.


This marks the 12th year for the Myrtle Beach International Film Festival. The MBIFF has continued to grow every year. We are open to all genres, and believe in the independent spirit of film . MBIFF also has a budget category, so a film with a 10 thousand dollar budget does not compete against a project with a 10 million dollar budget (with the exception of the overall winner). Selected by Movie as Maker Magazine one of the top 25 film festivals worth the submission, one of the top festivals in the world by Film International, and touted by many as one of the most important indendepent film festivals in the festival circuit . We are passionate about film and it shows!

We have selected what we feel to be the most diverse panel in the film festival circuit. From professionals to film makers, liberals to conservatives. If a panel member has a problem with the content it will be placed with a panel member that does not find a problem with content. We are looking for projects that have, a vision, a story, and are done with passion.

The MBIFF screens projects in a multi-million dollar theater, housing state of the art technology.

We look forward to viewing your film /project!
