The bi-monthly and annual IMDb qualifying Boston Indie Film festival seeks to recognize and promote indie shorts, features and screenplays from talented emerging and established artists working in media.

We are devoted to selecting and awarding US and international projects and we would like to provide exposure and publicity to the nominees and winners of each edition by providing laurels, certificates and promotions for indie projects. Our intention is to promote artists and film projects and provide the best tools for indie films to succeed in other festivals and create breakthroughs in the career of talented filmmakers.
