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 for the following year. 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.

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 Feature Film
Best Feature Documentary
Best Short Narrative & Docs
Best Short Film
Best Student Film
Best Mini-Short
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.

1.We accept films of any year of production, any genre, any author. Our jury will screen the films privately, we accept films that have already been screened in other festivals and also films that are already available online. Judges will award the best films through private screenings.

2.Submissions in languages other than English must be subtitled in English.

3.Multiple entries are allowed. You can submit more than one film to the same category.

4. The Festival is open to everyone. If you’re under 18, you will need to include a parent’s name and contact info.

    Me and my team won "Best web series" last November 2020, but I didn't know that until I visited their web site on March 2021!
    I would say, an independent filmmaker puts too much effort for this and the money that we spend on our projects is always limited, even for the entrance fee for festivals.
    Yes, this looks like a scam 100%

    Nothing more to add to the words of these colleagues. They "selected" two of my films, but did not answer to the email, nor to messages on their Facebook or whatever. To say more, it even seems that they do not care about it as the selection email you receive is written like it is from last year.

    SCAM ALERT: We were 'selected' but we didn't hear anything from the festival itself, they didn't respond our email and nothing appears on any social media or websites related to the festival. This is scam 100%.
