Welcome to Critical Edge Film Festival, a national network of festivals projected toward college students!

We've partnered with the art students in Chicago, IL to help bring you Avant Edge Film Festival! Our aim is to bring your film, assuming that it is radical in ideology and breathtaking in cinematography, to the student masses in one of the most artistically-rich cities in the Midwest United States. Chicago houses a vast student art scene as well. Finding like-minded festivals in the area can provide excellent opportunity to filmmakers interested in targeting a younger demographic - our next generation of filmmakers and movie-watchers.

A typical early screening event lasts an hour, and takes place at a local cafe, art gallery/studio space, or outdoors (depending on the venue). Our annual event will take place at multiple venues, run longer, and screen feature and short films - the annual event showcases the films selected as winners of their submission category (among other selections).

Anthony), and the Festival is one of the longest running women’s film festivals in the U.S. Offerings will include an international slate of feature length independent films, both narrative and documentary, as well as four shorts programs, screened at the historic Little Theatre.

The South Carolina Underground Film Festival celebrates all genres of independent film in one festival. Taking place in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina, SCUFF is truly an international film festival as we are seeking films from all over the globe. The SCUFF will be two packed days of indie films where fans and filmmakers can meet and mingle and celebrate obscure and independent film.

Besides promoting and showcasing the best in truly independent cinema from all around the globe, the SCUFF also promotes local filmmaking in SC. We will shine a special spotlight on SC produced films and filmmakers. Filmmakers will have an opportunity to have their works screened for a captive audience while competing for awards in many categories.

From the novice to the professional, from the student to the experimental filmmaker, SCUFF is seeking all type of films that may not be able to find an audience in more mainstream film festivals.

Drama, comedy, horror, sci-fi, action, animation, music videos, fake trailers, puppet shows, claymation, documentary, LGBT, and so on. If you can create it, we want to see it. The more obscure the better!

Do you have to ask yourself if your film is too much for our festival? If so then we definitely want to see it! Does your film push social boundaries? Would Sundance or any mainstream festival laugh at you thinking you had a chance to get into their festival? Then we want your movie!

Q&A’s will follow screening with visiting filmmakers and actors. The festival will end on the second night with a big awards ceremony as we give out the SCUFF awards! Follow us on Facebook and we continue to make announcements until the festival arrives! Good luck and we can’t wait to see what you made!

The SCUFF wants to promote and nurture independent films and filmmakers. We want to expose to the world a whole new segment of cinema that they would never see anywhere else. Because of this our film festival is FREE to the public! We hope this will bring out lots of people to all the screenings and create a fun and festive environment for not only the attendees but also visiting filmmakers.

Awards & Prizes

SCUFFY Awards will be given out in many categories. Our new SCUFFY awards were designed and sculpted by special effects artist Tony Rosen who is most famous for creating the Annabelle doll used in the films "The Conjuring" and "Annabelle".

Welcome to Sick ’n’ Wrong, the only film festival that peels back the decaying flesh of conventional cinema, cracks open the bones underneath, digs down through the fat and gristle, and rips out the throbbing black heart of film art so everyone can bask in its terrible beauty.

At Sick ’n’ Wrong, we’re not (just) about unspeakable gore, and we’re not (only) into shockingly tasteless humor—we welcome the weird, the uncategorizable, the aggressively bizarre. If you’re an indie filmmaker, and your work makes the traditional festivals cringe, Sick ’n’ Wrong is probably your true home.

Sick ’n’ Wrong accepts films of all genres and form: horror, black comedy, animation, documentary—anything that makes us squirm! Every selected film screens at the festival, and winning filmmakers will receive custom 3-D printed “Sickies” in the following categories:

Best Movie
Best Story
Best Performance
Best Music
Best Special Effects
Funniest
Scariest
Audience Favorite

Plus two more in these Sick 'n' Wrong–specific categories:

Sickest—for the most viscerally gut-wrenching visuals
Wrongest—for the most horrifically inappropriate story content!

Sick 'n' Wrong takes place in the oppressively pleasant Orlando, Florida and held its inaugural event in 2016.

The 5th annual Studio City International Film Festival will be held from Nov. 3rd to Nov. 9th, 2017. We take great pride in making our festival a great experience for filmmakers.

We encourage, celebrate and embrace diversity. Our number one criteria is the ability to tell a story. This is a premier networking event. In addition to drama, comedy and horror shorts and features, we have categories for music videos, web series, TV pilot, documentaries and animated shorts. Vlad Nikitin, director of the award-winning “Grand Chinatown Robbery,” says that: “This is one of the few festivals that actually likes filmmakers, unlike most that just screen your film and kick you out right after. I highly recommend this festival...had a lot of fun last year, great venue and organizers, open bar with a great host.”

The festival features live music, celebrity interviews, industry networking and extensive filmmaker Q&A. This year screenings will be at the Laemmle Theater in North Hollywood and awards night at the CAP Studio in Sherman Oaks. Every year we honor a celebrity on awards night. Last year actress Joely Fisher (sister of Carrie Fisher and known for "Ellen," "Til Death," "Desperate Housewives," and many other TV and Movie roles) was honored with a lifetime achievement award.

Engraved trophies given to the winners.

Good luck and we hope to see you in November!

HISTORY OF TBILISI INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

Tbilisi International Film Festival was first held in 2000 within a larger art festival framework, Gift which had numerous supporters and sponsors. Consequently, the festival at that time had interesting and diverse program. In 2002 the festival faced closure threat and a circle of friends and co-thinkers (Gaga Chkheidze, Nino Anjaparidze, Lasha Bakradze, Davit Bukhrikidze, Besik Danelia, Guga Kotetishvili, Gaga Lomidze and Giorgi Kajrishvili) decided to set up the Cinema Art Center, Prometheus to maintain it and run other projects too. In 2002 the Cinema Art Center, Prometheus organized the festival with its scarce financial resources.
Ultimately, Prometheus succeeded in attracting attention of governmental agencies and in 2004 the Georgian National Film Centre provided it with financial support along with other private sponsors. A couple of years later the Ministry of Culture and Tbilisi Municipality joined the track.
Main aims of the festival are to introduce Georgian public with new works of high artistic value made in Georgia proper and worldwide, inform it about new trends in the world cinema and support development of Georgian cinema industry.
Meetings of professionals in cinema community, workshops, master classes, retrospectives and other industrial events organized within the festival's frameworks give motivation to young cinematographers and encourage them to develop talent and artistic vision. We strive to turn the festival into a gathering place for filmmakers, producers, sales agents and distributors in South Caucasus. The festival has gained more significance throughout its history on worldwide scale. Number of the filmmakers willing to participate in the festival in any way is increasing year after year.

INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION AND PRIZES
The most exciting part of the Tbilisi International Film Festival is the International competition in which 10 - 12 directorial debut or second full length feature films by European directors participate. Since the Festival takes place in December it gives us an advantage of selecting films that have already gained popularity at different festivals in other parts of the world.
There are two official prizes for the categories: Best Film (Gold Prometheus) and Best Director (Silver Prometheus). In addition to the golden and the silver Prometheus we also have the non-official prizes for instance the Parajanov Award, for Outstanding poetic vision. Different organizations are also encouraged to fund the event with various prizes. In 2011 Bank of Georgia, established an award for the Georgian Panorama film, the award was given to WILL THERE BE A THEATRE UP THERE?! by Nana Janelidze.

The FIC AUTOR (Author's International Film Festival) is interested in unique and artistic films that exceed the limits of traditional storytelling. We look for Feature and Short Films that reflect the director's personal creative vision, and a style that is distinct enough to shine through the collective process.

We don't care if your films have recognized stars or unknown names; we are against the politics and bureaucracy that floods the film industry. We want to be recognized as an objective festival. We don't want to build our reputation based on how many superstars are in attendance; what we want is the truly best world cinema in our theaters!

The first edition of the FIC AUTOR will take place from November 10 to 18, 2017 in Guadalajara, Jalisco, México. We will present the very best films from around the world, and a Master class for filmmakers and students who want to perfect their craft under the hand of our jury guest Cannes Caméra d'Or award winner Michael Rowe. FIC AUTOR will strive to be one of the most important cultural events in the city. We aspire to become an international spotlight for new directors, while building one of top 50 film festivals in the world.

-Every film will receive the comments from the jury for FREE!. (The jury write comments for every film so.. why should we hide them from you? Or why should we charge you a fee for it?)
-The selected Authors will receive the OFFICIAL SELECTION LAURELS to post on their sites.
-The nominated Authors will receive the NOMINATION LAUREL to post on their site.
-CLOSE TO 150 FILMS WILL BE SCREENED AT THE FESTIVAL.

We are not like other bulls**t festivals, YOU DONT have to pay for your prize. IT'S A PRIZE, NOT A DEBT! And we don't give metal or glass trophies... Our trophies are 100% made from silver and semi-precious stones! As independent filmmakers we know the things we love and hate about film festivals, so we want to avoid all the negative things we have found the in past years, such as exorbitant, unnecessary fees, teenage judges and other "judges" that don't even watch the whole film or don't even share their comments, and of course.. trophies you would rather hide in the closet.

A FESTIVAL FOR INSPIRING ARTISTS AND STORYTELLERS

This three day festival is organized by JAN HENDRIK VERSTRATEN and MASSIMO BARBATO who are themselves filmmakers and writers. They believe at the heart of every great film is a great story, one that will inspire an audience and hopefully help to shape culture in a positive way.

The second edition of NRFF Amsterdam will be held in March 2018, at the arthouse cinema LAB111, which is close to the famous Vondelpark in Amsterdam, a city known for its diversity and innovation in the creative arts.

NRFF Amsterdam has several categories for International, Benelux and LGBT filmmakers. We especially love quality drama shorts with strong emotional themes.

We will screen up to 100 films in two cinemas over the course of three days. This event includes a screenwriting competition, professional MASTER CLASSES by industry professionals, Filmmaker Q&A's, Panel Discussions, a fun COCKTAIL HOUR and AWARDS CEREMONY.
