Since the 1930's, the geographically and culturally diverse island of Bali has inspired the creative, artistic and spiritual with its unique traditional cultural and colorful ceremonial life. Bali International Film Festival, also known and registered as Balinale, invites international filmmakers to present their work to a discerning audience that's a wonderful mix of locals and expatriates from across the globe.

Recognized internationally for the diversity of its programming consisting of Indonesian and international independent and award winning fiction, documentary, feature and short films, it is also credited for the quality of the associated events where filmmakers enjoy Balinale's relaxed and familiar manner informally meeting to discuss films, trends and the demands of a growing fast paced industry.

Balinale is known for its specialized knowledge and importance in promoting Indonesian cinema acting as a platform and history of supporting established and aspiring local filmmakers with workshops and seminars as an important part of the program along with international filmmakers who continue each year to help us achieve our goals of bringing together a gathering of global creativity.

The festival’s 'Official Venue Partner’ Cinemaxx (PT. Cinemaxx Global Pasifik), is a state-of-the-art five studio multiplex theater located at the popular and conveniently located Lippo Mall Kuta Jl. Kartika Plaza, South Kuta Beach.

Balinale actively participates and contributes to other industry events developing affiliations, such as; Motion Picture Association, Asia Pacific Screen Awards (Brisbane, Australia), ASEAN International Film Festival & Awards (Kuching, Malaysia), Asian Film Commissions Network (20 member countries), American Film Showcase and Sundance Institute's Film Forward.

The festival holds the honor of receiving the endorsement of the National and Provincial Government for its proven efforts in delivering cultural, political and economic benefits to the country. Established in 2007, the non-profit non-government foundation is strongly supported by the community in its children's charity program, school visits and free open air cinema, locally known as 'layar tancap'.

The primary objective of the Columbus Black International Film Festival is to showcase Black filmmakers locally, nationally and internationally while highlighting a spectrum of stories told by people of the African diaspora.

This festival will also provide an advantage for filmmakers and the community to learn about the film industry through educational workshops and panel discussions, a safe space to showcase film and an opportunity to network with the filmmakers in the city.

Columbus is the heart of America and home to some of the most creative Black filmmakers in the country. This festival will showcase new and emerging talent as well as talent that has represented our city for years.

Write what you know, is the kind of advice that writers love to hate. And rightfully so, well, sort of. With recent surprise hits such as Get Out, Lady Bird and The Big Sick it’s clear that successful films often explore topics and themes that are closest to the writer’s heart. With Hollywood always searching for THE NEXT BIG THING, it’s vital that writers write what they know… in their hearts.

DARKNESS can be many things. Dark comedy, drama, lore, animation style, genre, horror, thriller, web pilot, subject matter for a documentary.

The festival is as diverse as our alumni, who come from over 50 countries around the world. Filmmakers globally are looking to the Hamilton Film Festival as an accessible event with multiple chances to screen, network, win awards and gain post-festival promotion as our Alumni is our family and your movie never has a shelf life with us!

We will also be dedicating a screening to WEBISODE PILOTS. With the increase in webisodes, and the eyes looking for new content, we will accept your pilot (or episode of your choosing) to highlight! (Did you see the quote at the top? That was a webisode they saw)

We want you to think about disability and film. Specifically we want you to consider the people who are hard of hearing or Deaf. These people want to watch your films!

The Hamilton Film Festival is offering a submission discount to films that have English subtitles. Yes, even for English-language films.

If your film has (or will have) subtitles please reach out to us prior to submitting and we will offer you a discount code which will apply to both the Hamilton Film Festival screenings and the Canadian Film Market. Contact us directly for the code.

We receive between 400 - 700 films, typically screening around 150 of them, so if your film is good…so are the odds!

We are a festival that is very proud of screening films made by all filmmakers, regardless of gender or race. Everyone has a chance!

We are proud to offer, for the third year, the Canadian Film Market which runs the final weekend of the festival and will include Industry Development events, quality networking, pitches and more! Dozens of countries have participated. You should too!

Guillermo Del Toro love’s our city and say’s he’s been watching it since the 90’s and would like to set up his own studio here. Hamilton, Ontario, Canada is a major destination for film and television productions. Shows like The Handmaid’s Tale, The Shape of Water, Spotlight, Crimson Peak, Suicide Squad, The Hulk and Robocop are just a few films that have taken advantage of Hamilton’s many incredible locations. Producers love the additional tax credits, Directors love the “anywhere is here” look of the city, and people love seeing it on screen! You will also have the opportunity to meet with the people who run the film office, should you wish to film in our great city!.

Filmmakers around the world are choosing the Hamilton Film Festival as a required stop, and we want YOU to be a part of this growing scene that is on the verge of expanding into a not-so-hidden gem! See you, and your film, in Hamilton this November!

Tbilisi International Film Festival was first established in 2000. The festival was born within a larger art festival framework entitled Gift, which carried numerous supporters and sponsors. Consequently, the festival at that time was able to have an interesting and diverse program. Faced by the threat of closure in 2002, a circle of friends and co-thinkers (Gaga Chkheidze, Nino Anjaparidze, Lasha Bakradze, Davit Bukhrikidze, Besik Danelia, Guga Kotetishvili, Gaga Lomidze and Giorgi Kajrishvili) decided to set up the Cinema Art Center, Prometheus to maintain the festival alongside the coordination of other projects. In spite of scarce financial resources, the 2002 festival went on to be held by the Cinema Art Center, Prometheus.
Prometheus was ultimately successful in attracting the attention of governmental agencies, and in 2004 the Georgian National Film Centre provided their financial support alongside other private sponsors. A couple of years later, the Ministry of Culture and Tbilisi Municipality also contributed their support.

The key aims of the festival are to introduce the Georgian public with new works of high artistic value — made in Georgia proper, and worldwide — and inform them of new trends in world cinema, in tandem with supporting the development of the Georgian cinema industry.

Meetings of professionals in the cinema community, workshops, master classes, retrospectives and other industry events organized within the festival's frameworks give motivation to young cinematographers and encourage them to develop their talent and artistic vision. We strive to turn the festival into a gathering place for filmmakers, producers, sales agents and distributors in the South Caucasus. The festival has grown in significance on a worldwide scale; the number of filmmakers willing to participate in the festival, via numerous pathways, is increasing year after year.

Model N Movie International Short Film Festival is constantly changing and growing from the year of 2015. MNMISFF started in 2015 at the National Level but with time, as public demands grew, we were urged to take this festival to a Global level to let people join from every corner of the Globe. Our vision is to shape up and promote a film industry that values talent to generate sources of income for the needy and deserving. A set-up like this is essential for a peaceful social state which in turn will lead to intellectual development of people guided by proper and adequate education. So, one of our goals is an all-round development of society - both economically and intellectually. Economic and intellectual developments play a key role in the advancement of human civilization - thus enriching the human civilization and retaining - while progressing - the integrity of its history.
We feel proud to have been able to win the hearts of many participants in the previous years and we hope to win more and more hearts in future.

In its 6th year, Animal Film Festival (AFF) is the only global fest of its kind, seeking specifically animal-themed films in every category. AFF is held at a beautiful and state of the art theater in the heart of the Sierra Nevada foothills in Grass Valley, California. AFF kicks off with an invitation-only party the night before the fest - serving delicious catered vegan food and beverages. Filmmakers are provided with free lodging (as available) and VIP treatment throughout the fest. Audience discussion follows films where the filmmakers are present. Each filmmaker receives a gift bag loaded with animal-friendly products. Best of all, the films screened at Animal Film Festival go far in changing people's minds and treatment of animals. This is a win-win for our audience and animals.

AFF seeks films that bring awareness about the realities animals face in the world today. The stories showcased in documentary, scripted, feature and short films are engaging, funny, edgy, beautiful and inspirational. The festival seeks to explore topics about companion animals, wildlife, animals used in entertainment, farming, and laboratories. We are looking for films that highlight ways our society celebrates our relationships with non-humans, as well as films showing the ways we mistreat them. Animal Film Festival aims to not only entertain audiences but to propel people into action to change their own lives as well as the animals affected. AFF is presented by the non-profit animal advocacy organization Center for Animal Protection & Education (CAPE), founded in 1992.

Turning nine in 2019, QWFF includes an annual multi day/multi venue festival, youth-oriented educational initiatives and year round screening opportunities for QWFF filmmakers, past and present. The festival is programmed in thematic blocks with evocative titles, and each program is followed by a post-screening dialogue to engage audiences from the demographically diverse communities that comprise the borough of Queens. Each year the festival has a very robust submission session, with films coming from all over the globe, 63 nations to date, including Cuba, Franc, Spain, Serbia, Korea, Bangladesh, China, Italy, the Ukraine, Iran, Scotland, Belgium, Finland and the UK to name just a few.

In every year’s festival there are tender films, heartbreaking films, and several works that are extremely provocative, maybe even, disturbing and the selections tie us into conversations people are having around the world via the real stars of the festival: the films. It’s about surrendering to the films, without looking for familiar names, titles, scores. It’s about creating the right context for personal, intimate films grouped together for a cinematic experience you will not get anywhere else on the planet.

The 9th Annual Queens World Film Festival returns to the Museum of the Moving Image in both the Redstone theatre and the Bartos screening room as well as the historic Zukor Theatre at the Kaufman Astoria Studios located right next door for 11 days of exciting indie films - March 21 - 31, 2019. Strategically placed between the two venues is the fabled Astor Room with incredible food and special discounts just for QWFF participants and attendees. The festival village is located in the Astoria Arts District which is subway close and easy to find via foot or in your car (Yes, there is street and metered parking!)
