The Mission of Virgin Spring Cinefest is to create a platform that every filmmaker needs, in order to showcase and get recognitions for their films. The objective of the Film Festival is to support independent filmmakers through reviewing, judging, marketing, and distribution networking, and trying to overcome any other obstacles which potentially hinder the artist’s ability to create.

Virgin Spring Cinefest (VSC) is an ISO 9001:2015 Certified Organization and an IMDb Award Listing Qualifier.

Films entered in multiple categories may win multiple awards!

The festival has been named in honor of Ingmar Bergman’s classic film "Virgin Spring" and it has been launched to showcase independent art-house films from around the world.

We have created monthly editions to give continuity to the selection process and a steady feedback to the filmmakers. Instead of waiting for months before getting an answer from the festival, filmmakers are immediately contacted if selected. Their works are privately screened every month and evaluated by a team of experts in the industry. All entries do not compete against each other. Instead, entries are judged against a high standard of merit and are scored accordingly. The event aims to create a strong relationship between filmmakers, producers, and distributors from all over the world.

Submissions are accepted exclusively through FilmFreeway.

All projects officially selected in each month receive the VS CINEFEST laurel and certificate, and are rated at their IMDb pages (if applicable). All monthly Award Winners will receive the VS CINEFEST laurel and customized certificate. All entries do not compete against each other. Instead, entries are judged against a high standard of merit and are scored accordingly.

Each month, the most representatives of monthly award winners will be screened at the prestigious venue in Kolkata and reviewed by CULT CRITIC film magazine. These reviews are shared at each film IMDb page (if applicable). Some filmmakers, screenwriters and actors/actresses could be invited for an interview to be published as well in CULT CRITIC film magazine. Judges score quality and creativity of entries on a performance scale and winning entries are recognized and awarded monthly at four levels:

Gold Awards,
Silver Awards,

Honorable Mentions.

All monthly winners of the period from September 2021 to August 2022 will be auto-matically nominated for the prestigious GOLDEN GALAXY AWARDS.

What we’re looking for? Prolific art-house films, which can be in the form of narrative (fiction), documentary (non-fiction), or animation.
The films must include English subtitles (unless the spoken language is English).

By submitting your film, you agree that Virgin Spring Cinefest can use parts of your film (including trailer/teaser/film poster) for promotional purpose.

Virgin Spring Cinefest does not accept the following:

1. Extremist or propaganda content from religious or political organizations
2. Films which are made before 2000
3. Films with a poor production standard (bad sound, lack of subtitles/captions for non-English films, or video resolution less than 720p HD)

Genres accepted: Fiction, documentary, and animation.
