You'll have the chance to ask the filmmakers questions and get inspired by independent films. A perfect way to spend your Sunday afternoon. 

SUBMIT YOUR FILM  [click Show More to see the rules]

All films will be chosen based on the order in which they are submitted (first come, first served). 

Filmmakers present their films and have the chance to discuss their creations with the audience and other filmmakers. Whether seasoned industry professionals or newcomers, everyone brings their own short films, enriching the event with a diverse and captivating array of cinema. With such a wide range of new films being shown, the event truly represents the current output of the indie filmmaking community.

RULES
