"The festival was a revelation. The scope and quality of films, workshops and networking opportunities were truly splendid. It's busy, it's exciting, it's thrilling. Organised to a fine detail, the SEIFF is a filmmaker's dream. One of the best in the UK." Dave Gilbank, Polterheist

MISSION

SEIFF is a true celebration of independent film which brings together filmmakers, film shakers and the movie-going public in a warm, convivial environment.

With a focus on increasing opportunity for independent filmmakers, SEIFF looks to promote and exhibit exceptional work by creatives from around the globe and help them make valuable connections - while increasing the audience for their work. SEIFF is more than just a film festival, it's an unforgettable experience for all involved, making SEIFF an essential industry event.

A multi-award-winning jury panel including BAFTA/Oscar/Emmy winners, agents and producers, all official selections meet at our invite only networking event and will receive a full festival pass.

NEW FOR THIS YEAR

SEIFF in 2019 now accepts web series and also this year will present an award for best Canadian film. All official selections in all categories will be reviewed on imdb and get an invite to our private festival networking event with industry alumni and judging panel.

THE INDUSTRY

SEIFF presents a diverse programme of only the highest quality independent feature films, animation, documentaries, short films and web series from all around the world.

SEIFF looks to make important discoveries of upcoming directors, actors, writers and all those involved in the filmmaking process, ensuring it’s a renowned and valued platform for both undiscovered talent and respected industry peers alike.

Our key objective is for SEIFF to be seen as a mark of quality and a SEIFF award to be a stamp of recognition and true validation.

With a large number of exceptional films being made that struggle to gain attention but deserve to be seen by critics, agents, peers and film lovers, SEIFF aims to bring to the festival the most superlative and creative films. SEIFF prioritises making the festival an attractive destination for agents, critics, investors and other career-makers.

The festival includes networking, Q&As, screenings, social events and special guests.

Our closing annual awards ceremony at the world famous Queen's Stand, Epsom Racecourse, gives recognition to the best talent in front of and behind the camera with a gala ceremony open to filmmakers and the public.

WOMEN DIRECTORS

SEIFF is particularly keen to promote the work of women filmmakers and includes a special award for women directors. Women directors in all film categories are eligible.

EPSOM

Epsom is an area steeped in history which is just a 30 minute train ride from London. Home to Epsom Racecourse and the world’s most famous horse race, The Derby (where Emily Davison famously took a fatal stand for the suffragette movement in 1913), it is a former spa town which gives its name to Epsom Salts. With proximity to London a key factor (in terms of accessibility to the industry), as well as the importance of available venues, hospitality and great food, Epsom is a vital gateway.

Welcome to GLOBAL FILM FESTIVAL AWARDS. We are a monthly and annual competition based in Los Angeles. We want the best worldwide film stories to promote filmmakers’ works for distributors.

The GFFA is an open door for independent filmmakers. It's a special jury formed by Hollywood producers, European and international distributors to promote films and new media.

What's the difference between submitting your project to GFFA and other film festivals?
GFFA is not the typical film festival that promotes only local artists. We have an original global channel with partners. To date, our press crew around the world includes press in the USA, Canada, England, Denmark, French, Italy, Spain, Japan, Australia, Argentina, and Brazil.

We understand the difficulties independent producers face to have a fully analyzed project. Our judging team is looking for potential films and filmmakers for scheduled meetings with executives from the film and television industry. GFFA is an opportunity for independent showrunners, directors, and producers to meet with a worldwide audience.

Every month, our jury will award the best independent filmmakers through private screenings. Every submission can submit to as many categories as fits the film to increase the chances of winning. We also provide honorable mentions for filmmakers who may not necessarily win but who should be acknowledged for their work. All the annual winners receive the prestigious Golden Star trophy, and monthly winners may contact our team to order their trophy and pay the production and shipping costs.

The GFFA Public Event will celebrate the "Best of Year" competitions. The Global Film Festival Awards has the honor of hosting eight exclusive artists on our team. The GFFA family is made up of diverse professionals who are looking for unique and creative films from around the world.

Good luck!
