OPEN YOUR MIND 2023

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, EXPERIMENTAL, SPIRITUAL/PHILOSOPHICAL or a ART/MUSIC 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 2023.

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.

  • Thank you so much for hosting us! We were thrilled and honored to be part of Dreamers of Dreams Film Festival! Our film was still "young" and it really gave us confidence!

  • A big thank you to Massi and Jan who organise this beautifully curated film festival. You can feel the big heart that goes into this and their passion for film making and social consciousness clearly shines through and is extremely refreshing and uplifting. Our music video for Carl Blarx Life Sentences was nominated for an award at the Dreamers Of Dreams film festival and won Best Short Short!

    My first time at Dreamers and what a joy it was for my other half Val and I to attend. Absolutely first class screening quality at Kino (the best screening of my short 'The Day After' to date). We saw a really absorbing selection of shorts throughout the day which led to some interesting chats with other filmmakers. Many thanks to organisers Massi and Jan for their very friendly and highly organised approach to the festival ... and for awarding my short with Best UK Experimental Short. Highly recommended and I'd love to be submitting a future short to Dreamers.
