Queer Kampala International Film Festival (QKIFF), is the first and only LGBTQ Film Festival in Uganda and the only gay film festival organized in a country where homosexuality is illegal. QUEERKIFF offers a powerful platform to promote and progress LGBTIQ rights through film advocacy in homophobic Uganda.

For the first time in homophobic Uganda, an International film festival celebrating and reinforcing the right to be LGBTQI was held. Against all odds, the creative Queer KIFF team laid strategies to beat the stern security and anti homo communities. The inaugural Queer Kampala International Film Festival was held 9th – 11th, December 2016 at different venues in the country’s capital Kampala.

Measures included security screening of attendees, keeping the venues secret and mobile daily. The attendants had to go to a different venue in the morning and afternoon. Venues were announced within hours to the event. Encouragingly, the LGBTIQ community, supporters and sympathizers hung in there and religiously followed us to the different venues attracting a turn up of more than 800 visitors with in a space of three days.
We are excited to announce the second edition scheduled for the 8th – 10th, December 2017. We are already accepting film submissions and be sure it will happen as our think tank is laying strategies to mitigate associated risks.

Together, we can end victimization of the LGBTQI community using social justice film-making, a tested and proven effective tool in changing hearts, minds, and laws!!

Project Goal

-Pushing for Legal Reforms through expanding the network of LGBTIQ advocates, supporters and activists who can lobby the relevant authorities and stakeholders particularly politicians who are attracted by numbers.

-Preventing Discrimination of the LGBTIQ Community through creating awareness to the general populace about the LGBTIQ Community. This is done with an aim of changing perceptions and attitudes of the general populace thus reducing stigma and discrimination against the LGBTIQ community.

-Promoting Production of Quality LGBTIQ Films by providing spaces where their films can be exhibited as well as recognizing and awarding the brave film makers who dare to tell the suppressed LGBTIQ stories.

To learn about Queerkiff read this illuminating interview about setting up a queer film festival in a country where homosexuality is illegal. The inaugural Queer Kampala International Film Festival came to Uganda last December. (via VICE News) https://news.vice.com/story/a-queer-film-festival-comes-to-uganda-where-homosexuality-is-illegal

The FantaSci Short Film Festival was born of the idea that there were too few festivals dedicated exclusively to "genre" films. Sure, there are plenty of horror fests that play a block or two of sci-fi films, but not nearly as many devoted to fantasy and sci-fi.

Thus, FSFF was created to cater to us. Because we're filmmakers, too! And we create sci-fi and fantasy films just like you. So we're committed to bringing to life a top-notch festival for the films we love.

The World On Fire Film Festival was founded to provide promotional opportunities to filmmakers from all over the world. Utilizing our network with various podcasts, radio shows, and theaters we provide our top tier winners with much needed promotional support for their film.

The World On Fire Film Festival recognizes excellence in filmmaking in several categories with the World On Fire Film Awards. We award deserving films in the following categories: Narrative Feature Film, Documentary Feature Film, Narrative Short Film, Documentary Short Film, Directing, Editing, Acting, and Originality in Film.

Tired of spending money on film festivals that do nothing for you? Us too. Films are judged in two ways. Each film that is submitted will receive either a Bronze, Silver, or Gold award based upon how it is received by the judges. So everyone that submits gets something for their film. Beyond that we will award the top tier films for specific categories, and provide those winners with promotional opportunities.

Officially Selected Films will be given the opportunity to have their films screened at The Trylon Cinema in Minneapolis, MN. The top award winners will receive promotional help exposing their work to thousands from several podcasts and radio shows across the U.S. Awards will be announced via our official website, targeted email blast, social media, radio, and internet promotional channels. It is requested, though not required, that awards won be mentioned in the promotional materials of the films being awarded.

More than being an opportunity to see your film on the big screen, The World On Fire Film Festival is dedicated to helping create opportunities for truly independent filmmakers to promote their work.

The Melbourne International Cinema Extravaganza M.I.C.E. aims to be one of Melbourne's leading cinema extravaganza, raising awareness and celebrating these wonderful totem animals- Mice.

It will attract filmmakers from all around the world and celebrate their brilliant creations. With a strong focus on all the millions of life saving mice who sacrifice their lives to the research and study of terminal illnesses/cancer world wide.

It is a unique platform for new talent and a celebration of cinematic creativity, innovation and extravagance with artists new creations being judged right here in Melbourne City.

Films with a focus on terminal illness will be welcomed to help, educate, raise awareness, and bring hope to all the sufferers and families.
Art, Music and Film is a dynamic, healing way to help sufferers and their families as well as entertain all those who come along to this wonderful celebration.

A celebration that will engage, entertain, enlighten and bring together local and International films and give recognition to these wonderful, remarkable, brave little animals with a big, corageous heart.

“I came up with this film festival idea whilst at my screening of my first film in my trilogy, FATE-It is what it is! This was at the 2013 New York City Independent Film Festival, in Time Square. New York is filled with masses of people running in all directions- like mice! Very similar to Mice in cages of scientific research and health trials. These humans were like mice, all going somewhere, doing something and 95% of them chasing their own creation and creativity. And almost 50% having suffered or been scared with terminal illness at some point in their lives. I came back to Melbourne city and saw the same thing. We are all mice and these amazing totem animals of this festival have such a significance to our lives. They are life-saving!
I want this festival to begin to bring awareness just to how lucky we are to have mice in our life and celebrate their existence in a Melbourne International Cinema Extravaganza- MICE.
It was the beginnings of creating brilliance. Don't wait – Create! And we shall do just that with all the amazing courage of all of us working as a team of creative little mice, exhibiting dynamic, wonderful, International films and in turn celebrate the life-saving mice!”
R Lobosco.
Creator/Director of MICE Festival.
One of the judges in the 2016 MICE festival.

The idea to stage a major international children’s film festival was originally conceived by Nick Place at Media Giants way back in 2004. Nick's passion for giving kids a chance to have a film festival all their own led to Little Big Shots.

Over a decade later, Little Big Shots has now become its own not-for-profit organisation dedicated to enhancing the media literacy of young people, fostering children's creativity and showcasing the very best in filmmaking for, by and about kids.

In 2017, entering its 13th year, the festival now stands as Australia’s only major stand-alone kids’ film festival - a niche Australian event, that tours all major cities in the country from June ever year. With its focus on diverse short films collected from all over the world as well as a commitment to showing the best child-made films from Australia plus plenty of competitions and opportunities for involvement, Little Big Shots is one of the year’s most exciting experiences for kids.

The Los Angeles Theatrical Release Competition & Awards mission is to celebrate independent filmmakers with an eye on having a Los Angeles Theatrical Release in a paid movie theater. Filmmakers will also have the opportunity to be awarded across all categories. Most great filmmakers think their films should get a theatrical release, but it's too expensive - until now.

Best Feature (any genre), Best Short (Overall) and Best Movie Trailer (any genre) will be given a 7-day theatrical release in a motion picture theater in Los Angeles County.

Please Note: Category entries are only for additional awards. It is not necessary to enter for any awards categories for any entry to win the grand prize of theatrical release! ALL submissions will be considered.

**Category ranges in fees are based upon entering just the submission (lowest price) and entering four categories (upper price). It is not necessary to enter additional categories for the film or trailer to be considered for theatrical release.
