The Creative Alliance paves the way for virtual short film festivals, having already successfully hosted one online film festival in the middle of the lockdown. We're excited to be back and organising 3.0!
You can still watch the trailers and Q&As from our previous event here:

We help you promote your work as a filmmaker, providing individual posters and Social media posts for each film/filmmaker in our line up.
You will be invited to join us for a LIVE Q&A via Zoom, giving you a chance to talk about your work and share your experiences with the filmmaking community.
We will be shouting about you from the rooftops, and once you are screened at any of our events, you are part of the family - The Creative Alliance!

Supporters of Independent and Short Films were treated to a weekend of award-winning short-films using a combination of Zoom and the Facebook streaming platform on 9th and 10th May.

Indie Film Fete 2.0 was birthed after Indie Film Fete 20, due to take place that weekend at The Bernie Grant Arts Centre, was forced to be canceled due to the current pandemic.

Indie Film Fete 2.0 managed to screen 18 short films over 4 sessions on the 9th and 10th May with a Q+A panel available to take questions after each session. It was literally akin to attending a film festival from the comfort of your home. The Creative Alliance are currently building an online collaboration platform for filmmakers with a particular emphasis on ensuring the spotlight is equally shun on those from underrepresented backgrounds.

- People's Choice for Section One and Section Two as well as an overall winner.
- Laurel's for festival selection and winning People's Choice.
- Prizes to be confirmed ASAP!

Films should be no longer than 20 minutes.
Ideally, filmmakers will be available for the Q&A sessions, via Zoom.
No specifications on when the film was made or previous screenings.

    Great Festival. A warm and welcoming atmosphere with a great passion for short films and their production. A wide palate of different genre's and tones made for a really successful and engaging festival over the two days. Great Work!

  • Lovely event run by a core team who are great at communicating with their audience, very welcoming to the filmmakers and help to create a fun environment. Films were all of a high standard and the feedback from the audience and Q&A with the filmmakers was inclusive and enjoyable for all involved.
