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.
-And the 13 winning Authors will receive the WINNER LAUREL and winner certificate to post on their site, plus FIC AUTOR trophy or rings and sponsor's prizes.
-WINNERS will be announced until the award ceremony that will take place in the CINEFORO the Saturday 18 November, 2017. The Cineforo is one of the biggest cinema theaters in the city with 440 seats, and is the most prestigious.

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.

NRFF had its successful inaugural festival in London in August 2016, and then in Amsterdam in March 2017. 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. The festival will be open to the public and ticket sales will be announced on the website in due course.
