Brno Film Festival is Film Festival with live screenings in Brno, in Czech Republic one a year. Our mission and goal is to discover and promote talented filmmakers from all over the world and present them to the public and therefore is our festival is a brilliant opportunity to participate in international competition.

We live in a new era of digital technology and the language of cinema and film production is going through many changes in marketing, distribution and screening of indie films. The art jury consists of students and professors of film schools in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

During the Notification Day, we will let you know if you will be nominated for the event itself, which will take place at the Sibir Cinema, April 19, 2023.

We cooperate with various distributors, to whom we regularly offer the best short and feature documentaries, feature films and, of course, horror movies! If your film will be of interest to various investors or distributors, we will help you with the distribution of your film.

Our festival focuses on supporting serious topics such as migration, COVID, war. We prefer the inventiveness and creative ways of expressing the film.
