The “New Vision International Film Festival” is a festival that showcases the best independent films from around the world. Every year we award the best film makers, writers and producers by inviting them to our annual competition hosted in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. We showcase various genres from non-fiction to fiction films. The festival has a wide range of attendees which include high profile Emmy, Grammy and Tony winners.

What makes NVIFF unique is our approach to Awards and Feedback. The festival takes awards very seriously and only does so after a very careful evaluation and provides a clear motivation for our choice. Furthermore we are also one of the few film festivals who are broadcasted on television.

We strongly believe that every movie is the result of hard work and, as such, they deserve our jury’s full attention during the evaluation and the best works deserve our acknowledgement and appreciation.

Not only do we grant prizes to the winners, but we also connect film makers to our network of professionals. Connecting filmmakers with our extensive database of agents, distributors and other industry professionals. Our festival is also globally orientated meaning we not only look for Western films but also films from Africa, Asia, South America and Australia.

Estimated annual Prizes and Grants: 1000.00$

    Amazing Festival! The staff great, very well organized and nice energy. Big diversity and quality. Can improve networking circumstances (a party after the event would be great) and the presenters can do a little better. But overall experience was great!
