FUSION IS A TOP REVIEWED FESTIVAL!
As you may know, FilmFreeway is the No.1 choice for filmmakers and scriptwriters for entering their projects and with thousands of Festivals that use this portal we are delighted to announce that not only is our London/North Festival in the top 100 best reviewed Festivals Worldwide but it is in fact in the top 50 as we post this announcement!

It has been an amazing ride for us and the feedback and reviews from filmmakers has been incredible and we would like to thank everyone that entered all of our Festivals – this is all sincerely because of you.
The North Europe International Film Festival is one of four Festivals presented by Fusion International Film Festivals.

Our mission is to bring in films & script projects from ALL over the globe.

What can Fusion International Film Festivals offer that you can't already get? The fact is that the films and scripts that we showcase will in the vast majority of cases be exclusive to the Film Festival circuit during that time and, from regions & countries from around the world.

Just imagine the breadth of work on-show. For genuine cinephiles, this kind of stuff is cinematic heaven. But you can't maintain a Festival with that alone. It’s the experience. We’re proud to say that what we are is a “Boutique” set of Festivals. This means that this experience is substantially different from going to a Festival held at a local multi-plex or concert hall and that means a huge advantage for you.

Our North Europe International Film Festival is all held in one convenient location; All of the screenings, workshops, meetings, networking, industry professionals, Awards Night and even hotel rooms. That means that we will always be there, supporting you and your project from before the Festival starts to the closing ceremony. So we won’t be hard to find, or difficult to locate, we know how important it is for Festival organisers to be on hand and to supply that all important personal touch. How do we know? We know because we already have huge experience in running other Film Festivals and from that we also know how to make it a better experience for you. With Fusion, it will be.

Independent filmmakers and creatives face many challenges; the large competition for viewers’ attention, finding funding and getting a distributor can only be overcome by the industry coming together and creating opportunities for those who need and deserve it. Our Festival’s aim are to create an opportunity for filmmakers to show their work to the right audience at our intimate and relaxing events, and get one step closer to success by receiving recognition for their art.

An up-and-coming filmmaker can get his/her name out there and increase their awareness just by being nominated at one of the Fusion International Film Festivals. The filmmaker can receive acknowledgement upon completion of their project and having it screened. There is also the potential for awards and recognition; showcasing our Laurels on a nominated project already means that you have the talent, this means it can also attract media, professionals and film fans that are eager to see new films.

With Fusion International Film Festivals you will have the opportunity to meet like-minded people, discuss films and get to know people you wouldn't have otherwise had the opportunity to speak with; this is something that we actively encourage and you can be confident that our Festivals will be full of new projects and fresh talent.

We believe a key ingredient is the programming, so all of our Festivals are inviting and engaging. This includes professional panels, workshops, script development and even fun filled social events and, through the influence of compelling stories, Fusion International Film Festivals goes to the heart of what moves us and at the same time, reveal stories which we may not be able to see in any other venues.

We are the ideal platform for the exchange of ideas and the sharing of experiences; your journey begins by submitting today!

All nominated projects will receive a high resolution Official Selection Laurel for marketing use; winners will receive an engraved high quality trophy and certificate.
All selected films & scripts will be invited to attend the Festival and all selected films will be screened during the Festival week. Winners that cannot attend the awards night will be contacted by the Festival team after the event to send the award to the provided address.

Multiple awards will be presented during the awards evening and all winners will be posted via social media. Below is a selection of recognised categories which will be included during the awards evening at our fantastic Awards Ceremony! This is all we charge for at the Festival and is a 4-5 hour event, that includes a three course meal and wines. All winners will take a trophy away with them. Our professional photographer is also there to take red carpet pictures that will all be accessible post festival.:-

    The communication was so great that even though I didn’t attend the event. It felt like I was there. The organizers continuously uploaded great photos and information to social media. They also provided me with several ways to promote my film at the event.
    I highly recommend submitting your work to this festival.

    An absolutely wonderful festival. Steve, Dan, and the whole team were really on top of their game the whole time in a way you just can't help but to appreciate. They really care about these films. They screened our film, "The Serpent in the Apple", and really went out of their way to keep us in the loop on everything that was happening. Our composer for the film went, and he had nothing but nice things to say about his experience. Really worth your time.

    Once again Steve, Dan and the rest of the team have demonstrated their expertise in putting on a first class inaugural Film Festival. Their passion for films and filmmakers shines through in everything they do. Even under pressure from award night gremlins their calmness and patience shone through. Every winner was given space and time to share their productions personal story, which to any filmmaker is an important part of the process.

    Well done guys, and all the best for the future.
