We collaborate with filmmakers and attendees from more than 150 countries and use a wide range of tools to highlight selected films and help independent filmmakers reach their audience and pros.

🟢 Our film festival is theme-focused.
Live Screenings International Film Festival is a film festival dedicated to fiction, animation, music, and experimental independent films.

We attract audiences who are specifically interested in the genre or subject matter of the festival. This means that your film is more likely to be appreciated and understood by the viewers who attend, leading to better reception and feedback.
Our festival has a narrow scope which can be an advantage for independent filmmakers looking to gain recognition in a specific niche. You have the opportunity to showcase your work to an audience that is specifically interested in your subject matter, which can lead to greater exposure for your film and your career. Focused networking can lead to valuable networking opportunities and collaborations for future projects.

🟢 Your film reaches a wider audience:
We host the festival in 3 screening formats: live-only, live-online, and online Festival Channel.

Your film will be screened in local venues such as local cinemas, conference halls, hotels, etc, in front of the audience receiving the emotional impact.

The energy and excitement of a live screening can create a unique atmosphere and help your film connect with viewers in a powerful way.

    It has been a fabulous experience. Being able to show our work and that the attendees could see it, give their opinion and give their assessment through their votes is something really great. Something also to highlight is the constant communication with the team of organizers. They are wonderful people who make us feel like family. We are already working on our next short film that we will surely send to the Live Screening International Film Festival.
