Our film festival highlights films and screenplays in the fiction genre. Drama and comedy, action and thriller, fantasy and science fiction, horror and mystery, - all fiction genres of film and screenplays are welcomed as well as animation, experimental, and music videos.

During the event, each film receives the audience feedback and evaluation by 6 criteria: script, directing, acting, camerawork, music, and impressiveness. Filmmakers receive detailed results personally after the event. Based on those results the best film receives the Audience Award as the Festival Winner.

A professional jury panel that includes award-winning filmmakers, producers, as well as representatives of distributors, buyers, and online streaming services, also reviews selected films and gives their awards.

Screenplay contest:
We pitch a short screenplay description (logline) on the event page to filmmakers and producers attending the festival. In case of their interest, we contact the screenplay author.
The author can send an additional written or video description for pitching.
A jury selects the Best Screenplay winner and other category screenplay winners.
The Screenplay contest winners receive certificates.

We hold the festival live in Tbilisi, Georgia at popular venues.

We receive submissions from more than 150 countries so we reach a loyal audience from those countries.
That’s why if we have permission from the filmmaker, we broadcast the film on a special channel on our website during the event days.

Overall Rating
  • Thank you for awarding "Enter the Room" for Best Thriller at your festival. The communication was clear and concise, the quality of films at the festival (it is a nice addition to allow the filmmakers who can't attend in person to view them online) continues to be the among the highest of all of the festivals that I have been a part of, and in general, this festival provides a lot more to filmmakers than most of the festivals that I have been involved with.

    I had a fantastic experience overall and definitely plan to submit future projects to Live Screenings International Film Festival.
