The Cine Circle Filmmaking Festival focuses on providing resources and opportunities for independent filmmakers to screen their films as well as develop and bring their films to life. It combines everything from short film screenings, film pitching competitions with funding prizes, workshops, seminars and a ton of networking!
SHORT FILM SCREENINGS
Enjoy a selection of independent short films.
Come along to explore new short films, pitch your own, as well as meet and network with like-minded indie filmmakers, actors, film financiers and indie-film marketing specialists. Whether you’re on the hunt for cast and crew, new projects, or are looking to explore your financing and marketing options, this is the perfect time and place to discuss it all! The Festival will be taking place at 93 Feet East in the heart of Brick Lane. We welcome everyone to attend, whether you’re a film lover, filmmaker with heaps of experience or are completely new to the industry.
Throughout the year we hold film networking events, with speakers, short film screenings, workshops and seminars as well as pitching competitions that have been attended by thousands of indie filmmakers. This will combine it all into one massive event.
