MISSION & OBJECTIVE
An established and recognized magazine on the film circuit, Independent Film Quarterly brings you our Film & Webisode Festival. The festival provides a platform where filmmakers can showcase their work (features, shorts, webisodes, animation, music videos and documentaries) and increase opportunities for producers and maximize potential for distribution. “Independent Film Quarterly brought you the interviews, now we bring you the Festival.”
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Independent Film Quarterly Film & Webisode Festival is a first of its kind where a film magazine brings together both film and new media in a competitive-festival setting. The Festival will exhibit a selection of short- and long-form works that exhibit strong personal visions combined with the highest standards of artistic merit and technical achievement.
The Festival aims to discover, showcase, and celebrate the work of today's up-and-comers, established professionals and tomorrow's industry leaders. In addition to features, documentaries, music videos, animations and short films, the Festival is interested in receiving webisode content from artists, directors, and producers developing webisodes and web series.
