When it comes to Independent Films, we have had many successful

years in the industry.  


We have even had films submited that have been nominated for

awards at the Oscars 2015.




We have been a part of independent film distribution, independent

movie making and the management of other International Film

Festivals.  We are a family run business which we started in 2009,

we currently have over 40 films in the market and have helped run five other film festivals. What started as a family passion has now become our life’s work.


Every year many of our participants and visitors tell us that highlight of the event is the socialising VIP dinner held on the first day of the festival, the VIP evening events held every evening and of course our Awards night.


We also give budding new producers and directors the chance to get some funding towards their next movie.


Complementing the excitement of seeing and meeting the independent movie makers and their films at the festival. We have our educational programs, ‘Pitch and Toss’ and talks from people in the industry. This program allows us to share with members

and visitors the skills, joys and pitfalls in the success of bringing your vision to the silver screen.


We are able to provide our guests with a taste of what even the biggest movie makers experienced as they tried to introduce their films into the world. Telling their story has been a vital part of the success of our festivals.


This video diary from a group of filmmakers attending the 2014 festival gives a good flavour of the festival and its atmosphere.
