We know how hard it is for an indie filmmaker to produce and distribute their works.

Mindie is the tool that every filmmaker needs, in order to showcase and get recognitions for their film:

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 work is privately screened every month and evaluated by a team of experts in the industry.

The monthly winners will then compete to be screened at our annual event. The event aims to create a strong relationship between filmmakers, producers and distributors from all over the world.

Submissions to the festival will close at the end of each month, our jury will select the winners on the 20th of every month.

Awards & Prizes

All entries receive Official Selection Laurels for the monthly private screening edition: Your film will get privately screened and evaluated by a team of international filmmakers.

All monthly winners will receive laurels and certificates.

Our jury will select the winners of each category:
Best Mini-Short
Best Student Film
Best Short Film
Best Short Narrative & Docs
Best Feature Film
Best Feature Documentary
Best Web Series

The jury will also select the films that will be screened at our annual event.
The best films voted during the annual event will receive a special prize.

    Nice enough festival, not complaints about the staff but it does seems a bit odd to be "selected" for a month even though most are not selected for the actual annual event, which is probably the actual festival part that counts... Gives a sense of false hope.

    Response from festival:

    Hi Derek! Thank you for the precious suggestion, we are working on making our selection process even better and clearer for our filmmakers. We surely don't want to give false hope, in contrary we want to give more visibility to the films, by giving out official selection laurels. We wish you all the best to you and your project and to all your future projects!

    For an independent and struggling documentary film maker this festival opened the door to recognition of my efforts, dedication and taking up a subject that none here would dare to touch.. It deserves heartfelt appreciation for prompt response to all queries. I will cherish the moment I was informed that I am part of official selection.
