The Myrtle Beach International Film Festival has been awarded several prestigious awards including one of the "Top 25 film festivals worth the entry fee" by Movie Maker Magazine.
What sets the MBIFF apart from other festivals is our commitment to Independent film. Many of the attendees has stated that this was their favorite film festival to submit, and attend. Once you are here, you are family.
We house they most diverse judging panel anywhere. From Liberal to Conservative, Professional to Blue Collar. Your film gets a fair shake unlike no other festival. Many film judging panels only house film makers which can grade on a different curve than a film enthusiast that may be a Waitress, Doctor, or someone outside the film industry. We believe that your project receives a more overall perspective grading as to whether it entertains or informs a wider viewing audience rather than that of only an entire panel of film makers. Not to worry, we do have a film maker on board as a judge!
The goal of the founder and director Jerry Dalton, was to create a venue for the independent film makers that was not corrupted by the politics of many events. We do not care who is associated with the film, only whether it entertains and, or informs.
The MBIFF screens projects in a multi-million dollar theater, housing state of the art technology.
We look forward to viewing your film /project!
