Filmmakers United International Film Festival (FUIFF) - FUIFF AWARDS 2024 - IMDB Qualified Festival -
The main goal of our festival is to raise awareness for a positive change internationally, nationally, in climate change, cultures and societies, specific groups, socially, politically etc…eg, subjects involving climate change, human- and animal rights, social and cultural issues.
The Mission of FUIFF is to create a platform that every independent filmmaker needs in order to showcase and get recognition for their films. They will be able to express their material freely and do not have to follow the same demands as with commercial films.
The objective of the Film Festival is to support independent filmmakers through reviewing, judging, marketing, distribution networking and trying to overcome any other obstacles which potentially hinder the artist’s ability to create. Entries are judged against a high standard of merit and are scored accordingly.
To give continuity to the selection process and steady feedback to the filmmakers, we are running a monthly edition. Instead of waiting for months before getting an answer from the festival, filmmakers are immediately contacted if selected. Their works are privately reviewed every month and evaluated by a team of experts in the industry.
We treat every entry as a uniqueness on its own, in that sense there is no competition against other film makers. To us the impact of your film or documentary is most important. FUIFF aims to create a strong network between filmmakers, producers and distributors on a global scale.
We cannot wait to see what you have created.
