The Crystal Palace International Film festival is an event designed to showcase independent films and film talent from around the world in a number of genres, formats and lengths. It gives a platform for well made films to be seen by an appreciative audience (in one of the coolest parts of London) that do not usually get to see high quality, independent films.

Winners receive a bespoke, sculpted CPIFF Award judged by film industry and celebrity judges such as UK top comedian Johnny Vegas. Many previous winners have gone on to theatrical and DVD distribution as well as TV broadcast.

Crystal Palace International Film Festival, CPIFF aims to promote independent film makers from all over the world. The festival is a huge success, extremely well attended, very well received and has grown immensly over the years. We always have a number of world, European and UK premieres of top quality films. CPIFF is discussed on BBC radio and advertised in a number of London and UK publications such as Time Out. The bigger, staged nights including the awards night, hosted by TV comedian Mark Steel were all sold out last season. The aim is to get bigger and bigger each year.

The Festival provides a platform for independent film makers to have their films screened at selected venues around Crystal Palace in London to a passionate audience of film professionals, journalists and the general public and to win a best in category CPIFF award. With Harlequin Productions TV connections there is some scope for future TV broadcasts.

There are 10 CPIFF awards presented at the Festival; the winners are chosen by a prestigious panel of judges including the UK's famous comedian, writer and producer, Johnny Vegas; Sony Award winning comedian, author and columnist Mark Steel, Neville Astley creator of Peppa Pig, Producer Beverley Dixon and Brian Dooley Bafta winning writer.

Crystal Palace is also simply one of the coolest places in London as well as one of the most beautiful. Aptly the very first colour TV transmissions were sent from here by John Logie Baird who invented TV and the BBC still broadcast from the 2 large transmitters clearly visible for miles.

Films must be submitted to the CPIFF (Crystal Palace International Film Festival) by 12 September 2014.

Please note that information given on the submission form may be used by CPIFF for publications.
