We want to support the best narrative and factual films out there including both short and feature films. We look for strong, compelling stories with high production values and exciting cinematography to showcase at the festival.
We started our own family run business in 2009, having been part of independent film production and distribution for many years prior to that, currently with over 40 films in the market. We have helped set up five other film festivals as well as running three of our own international film festivals. What started as our passion has become our life’s work.
Along with the giving you the chance to watch other innovative, thought provoking and entertaining films at the festival we also host educational programmes such as ‘Pitch and Toss’, script consultation, and talks with special guests from various areas of the industry. This allows us to share with members and visitors the skills, joys and pitfalls in bringing your vision to the silver screen. We also give budding producers and directors the chance to get some funding towards their next film.
If you have taken a full VIP package you will be able to enjoy dinner and entertainment at our specially selected venues every evening, which many previous visitors have pointed to as a highlight of the event. These include a socialising dinner on the first night of the festival as well as the Awards Night. Plus, during the day you can enjoy the city or watch as many films and talks as you wish for free.
We can’t wait to see you at our festival and look forward to chatting about your film and future projects. And if you’re just here to enjoy the films we look forward to a sit down discussion about them and aspects you loved, or would have done differently, and to find out your choice for film of the festival.
