IndieFlicks is the UK's monthly film festival, supporting the best up and coming filmmakers from around the world. IndieFlicks is continuously growing, hosting simultaneous screenings in London, Liverpool, Manchester & Sheffield.

"They only pick the best films for their screenings so it's not only a great festival to enter, but a great film night to attend. I've enjoyed every film i've seen so far.”
Chris Cronin, Director.

How our monthly festival works…

Our Monthly Festival is a showcase of Short films from around the world, screening 50 minutes of short film in the first half, followed by our selected Feature Short in the second. We also host a Q&A with filmmakers able to attend and talks with local creatives.
At each event, two films will be selected to win either one of our awards:

The People’s Choice Award
The Directors Choice Award

Films included in the first half are nominated for our 'The People's Choice Award’; This is evidently voted for our audiences on the night and votes are calculated collectively from all of our venues.

In the second half of the night we host our 'Feature Short', one film no longer than 50 minutes. This is our headliner for the event. This film is awarded, ‘The Directors Choice Award’, one that our Judging panel felt deserves recognition.

"Not only is IndieFlicks a brilliant opportunity to network within the Manchester filmmaking community, it offers insight into short filmmaking approaches worldwide."
Martyn Ellis, Sound Engineer, Noise Four

    Really cool night. Attended the London screening. The venue had a cool, relaxed, indie vibe to it. The organisers were really nice and friendly. The crowd was great too, they weren't just composed of filmmaker's friends and family, they were actual punters interested in short film - it was a good networking opportunity too. Having separate screenings in different cities at the same time was a nice twist too. I also liked that they didn't introduce the filmmakers until after the films were shown, which made the Audience Award voting less awkward! Would definitely attend again, even just as a punter.

    Great festival, very friendly and relaxed atmosphere with a good selection of films. John was very kind and supportive of my film and put me at ease when answering questions infront of the audience.
    Highly recommend this festival and hope to be at a screening again soon.
