The Hip Hop Film Festival is the FIRST festival to feature filmmakers raised in the global culture of Hip Hop. That means we focus on stories from all over the world, across all genres, written, produced and directed by lovers of the universal culture.

What makes us unique is that we share the profits of the festival with the filmmakers selected to participate while providing a dynamic environment for filmmakers to network, engage with titans of the industry and negotiate deals that will further their careers.

Last season, we hosted over 45 filmmakers from every continent, we were sponsored by NETLIX and other amazing corporations and saw over 3,000 film enthusiasts from all over the world descend on our dedicated theater in NYC for what we call "FOUR DAYS OF FRESH".

We also hosted "Master Series" where Hollywood Insiders gave their expertise on how to negotiate distribution deals, the business side of creating a successful web series, how to fund a major movie on a budget and more...

The festival awards the distinction of BEST of the FEST in 10 categories including, best Feature, Best Documentary, Best Web Series and more. The festival and our filmmakers received world wide press (see our worldwide press here ) and many went on to be invited to other festivals, some are now on world tours and some scored distribution deals ... and it began with the Hip Hop Film Festival.

The 2017 season of the Hip Hop Film Festival takes place August 3-6 in NYC.

Already being hailed by The Wall Street Journal as New York City's next major film event, and as mentioned on The Huffington Post, Kew Gardens Festival of Cinema is a non-profit organization established to support the development of and help expand the audiences for independent cinema from around the globe. The inaugural festival will take place Aug. 4-13, 2017.
The Kew Gardens Festival of Cinema was founded by four local independent filmmakers with a passion to get movies made and to have those artistic voices heard. Understanding the struggle in todays film environment in showcasing independent cinema, their goal is to establish a presence and awareness of cinematic creativity throughout Kew Gardens Queens and the neighboring communities.
As a festival created by filmmakers, we are doing everything to make sure that Independent Filmmakers get what they deserve out of a film festival. Our mission is to expand audience reach and bring awareness to films that might otherwise never have the opportunity to be showcased.
Kew Gardens Festival of Cinema accepts all lengths and genres, so we encourage filmmakers from around the globe to submit their work for a chance to have it screened in an actual movie theater, The Kew Gardens Cinemas. Built in the 1930's, it is Queens, New Yorks oldest and only operating Art House Movie Theater.
Because our festival takes place in a small town, we offer filmmakers a more intimate experience, allowing them to network with their audience and their peers. We want our filmmakers to succeed, so every filmmaker that submits their film(s) will automatically be receiving a 1 year subscription to Videomaker.com, a leading subscription service that focuses on guiding independent filmmakers with their online tutorials and publications (a $20 value). In addition all films selected will have the opportunity to transfer their film onto DCP at a remarkable discount being provided by Simple DCP, leader in DCP conversion for other major festivals, including SXSW and NewPort Beach film festival and HollyShorts.
Filmmaker recipients of the “IndiePix Vision Award” will be given an international distribution platform, potentially including release on DVD and VOD, as well as other digital opportunities. Aside from assisting with the implementation of a cohesive distribution plan, IndiePix will also support the awarded film with marketing and promotion, valuable exposure across IndiePix’s branded sites, newsletters and social media.
You can rest assured that all submitted films are watched in their entirety by our programmers, which we know is a major concern when it comes to choosing which festival to submit to. Along with our daily screenings, we plan on hosting intimate panel conversations with independent filmmakers, producers, distributors and sales agents. Something many festivals often overlook. You can expect red carpet premieres and familiar faces. The Festival staff will be hard at work promoting every film that gets accepted, to ensure that audiences attend your screening.
As a competitive festival, winners of our top categories will be receiving a unique statuette, along with additional prizes including opt in distribution opportunities, at our closing night gala.
Finally, we want this to be an amazing experience for everyone that attends - so expect to have activities such as Karaoke, Movie Trivia night, Happy Hours, Outdoor Screenings and After Parties hosted by our wonderful sponsors!

It’s our goal to cultivate the craft of screenwriting, to protect and prepare screenwriters for the next level of development, and to “CISS your passion into reality”…and what better way to do that than a friendly competition?

CISS is taking place in August 2017 in Calgary, Alberta – a beautiful city set in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Canada. We want our guests to see the kind of world-class architecture and entertainment that the city has to offer, and our chosen venue in the downtown core will highlight just those qualities.

A screenplay is the soul of a film, and the original legal document for the product in the business. A billion-dollar industry surrounds the art of the story, and audiences are craving content more than ever; it’s our mission to empower and inform the creators on how to take their material and make it into a marketable product, by helping to promote and cultivate the film scene in Calgary, Canada, and the world. Academics, professionals, hobbyists, and dreamers from all over the world are expected to attend the Summit.

It is our passion to provide screens for the finest of these independent films and strengthen the local film community by building an engaged audience.

Do you want a sho®t?
The festival was established in 2004 by a group of young Hungarian filmmakers in order to fill a gap in the category of short film, but over the years it became clear that it was about much more. The international breakthrough came rapidly on the 3rd festival in 2007 when shorts were screened from 45 countries. The name "BuSho" has come from a pun (Budapest Short - budapesti rövid), but it refers to a traditional popular custom of winter-send-of from Southern Hungary called "busójárás". One of our main goal is to develop, present and caught up the cultural identity of the Eastern European audiovisual sector helping it to give more experts to the market. We aim to give ground to young filmmakers for they can introduce, create and together we can make a new European Value. The number of entries in fiction, animation and experimental category is gradually increasing, in 2011 there were 962 shorts to be slected by the pre-jury of which 90 can make it to the competition. Beside the competition and informational program we have plenty of festival screenings, selections of film universities, feature films, film-, and all-art workshops in the program. Everyone welcome at the first week of September each year in the heart of Europe in Budapest. Come along and sniff up some culture.
