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.

    I found the Miami Independent Film Festival a life/career changing experience. The intellectual rigor and the committment to excellence had given not only visibility but an adrenaline boost to our project DAUGHTER OF THE REVOLUTION: The Documentary, directed by a pioneer Hungarian female director and filmed in Budapest.
    Thank You!
