Berlin Motion Picture Festival is an annual international event dedicated for independent filmmakers. Located in the city centre of Berlin, every year we host an amazing event at IL KINO, a truly cultural and indie cinema that breathes and lives for short films. The film industry today is largely monopoly-based and dependent on large scale budgets for productions to succeed. However, this festival aims at providing a voice for those who don't have a massive budget at their hands but nevertheless, an important story to tell.

Akin to our mission of providing a platform for indie filmmakers, we are able to provide an affordable solution catered to advance the cause of independent filmmaking. Therefore all submissions are priced at $10-$30.

We will be providing awards for a number of categories to which our Jury will carefully evaluate to their best degree. We welcome submissions of all genres and lengths!
