OPEN YOUR MIND 2022

WELCOME to NRFF Dreamers of Dreams. As we embark on a new era of technological and scientific discovery, this festival will spark your imagination and inspire you to think beyond the limitations of everyday life. We are inviting filmmakers to submit shorts and features with a SCIENCE FICTION, FANTASY, ART/EXPERIMENTAL or a SPIRITUAL/PHILOSOPHICAL theme. This can be a narrative story, a documentary, a dance or music video or, an animation. The festival will take place in London, UK, in November 2022.

Dreamers of Dreams is organised by the successful New Renaissance Film Festival (NRFF) ranked in the top 100 best-reviewed film festivals on FilmFreeway. NRFF has screened world and UK premieres and films that went on to win an Oscar!

OUR CURATION: ARTISTICALLY-DRIVEN FILMS, INSPIRING STORIES

Film is a unique medium, and NRFF’s mission is to support and champion inspiring, independent artists and storytellers. This includes experimental work, emotional drama, music, dance and emerging talent.

Our festival is built around ARTISTS and their STORIES. By doing so, we aim to establish an international COMMUNITY of inspiring storytellers. We are not interested in following current fashions or being politically divisive. We seek out stories that are genuinely imaginative, emotional and life-affirming. At the heart of what we do is our passion to tell great stories.

PUSH THE BOUNDARIES OF REALITY

During the festival we hope to screen a wide variety of stories that celebrate and reflect on the human condition, human invention and imagination, and our desire to explore new and uncharted territory.

    Loved everything about this festival. Offers a home to those films which don't fit into the typical boxes. Was honoured to attend in person. Jan and Massi are the men! Brilliant curators, big dreamers, warm and caring people. They run a great operation here. Submit your films!

    A fantastic festival that is curating really interesting work. I highly recommend! Massi and Jan were both great communicating and keeping everything running smoothly. I really wish I could have been there in person as the venue is a chic cafe/cinema that's the perfect size and atmosphere for meeting and talking to people.

  • A wonderful festival, and one of my favourite experiences along with Massi and Jan's associated New Renaissance Film Festival. The communication and organisation was excellent throughout, as was the venue and screening. It's a festival which is clearly passionate about film, in particular the more fantastical and experimental genres which may be overlooked elsewhere. A brilliant experience and a pleasure to attend!

    Both Dreamer of Dreams and their associated New Renaissance Festival were great. Would highly recommend. Massi and Jan were great communicators. Sadly I couldn't attend the screening but if the rest of their approach was anything to go by, this was doubtless a fantastic event too.
