Art, in all forms, inspires us. From the first drawings of the prehistoric man to Artificial Intelligence driven illustrations, the journey of art has been one of curiosity, progress and redemption. The form of cinema is the most impactful of them all. It is only this art-form that has the power to blend time with space. The real and the imaginary correspond to one another in films. It is only in cinema that we can reflect, introspect and often modify our realities as well as our history. It is a medium to look into our past and our future.

The transnationality of films often translates one civilization to another. Cinema is a calling card for universal values of humanity.

We are here to celebrate this power of films : the power to unite, the power to transform and transcend. We are the 4th Dimension Independent Film Festival!

The annual screening of FDIFF would take place in Paradiso. Paradiso is an unique venue which offers the audience a cozy atmosphere to enjoy their watching experience. Paradiso is based in Bali, Indonesia.

    Thank you for the wonderful Laurel.

    The festival has entered a new phase in the pandemic world.
    At the same time, it was an opportunity to make a movie in Japan, which is far away.

    I hope the online film festival will flourish.
    We hope to become a hub that connects people far away.
    Even so, I wanted to go to a real screening.
