FESTIVAL OVERVIEW

VIRGIN SPRING CINEFEST is a monthly international short film festival which has been created to showcase independent art-house films from around the world. The festival has been named in honour of Ingmer Bergman’s classic film ‘Virgin Spring’. The aims of the Festival is to act as a platform for aspiring film makers working in all genres and irrespective of budget and limitations. Each month, our Jury will award the best films through private screenings, and make a special interview with the winner of the Best Picture (Film of the Month) award. The winners from each month will be screened each year at an annual live festival which includes filmmaker Q&As, stalls, special guests and awards presentations. All the monthly winners will also compete for the Best of the Fest Award (Best film of the year) in October, 2018. Submissions are accepted exclusively through Film Freeway. Please visit the submission page for more details.

VIRGIN SPRING CINEFEST : A FESTIVAL TO CELEBRATE THE LIBERATION AND FREEDOM OF VISUAL STORYTELLING

Welcome to the Virgin Spring Cinefest. It is the platform that every filmmaker needs, in order to showcase and get recognitions for their film. The objective of the Film Festival is to support independent filmmakers through reviewing, judging, marketing, and distribution networking, and trying to overcome any other obstacles which potentially hinder the artist’s ability to create. We have created monthly editions to give continuity to the selection process and a steady feedback to the filmmakers. Instead of waiting for months before getting an answer from the festival, filmmakers are immediately contacted if selected. Their works are privately screened every month and evaluated by a team of experts in the industry. All entries do not compete against each other. Instead, entries are judged against a high standard of merit and are scored accordingly. The monthly winners will then compete to be screened at our annual event. The event aims to create a strong relationship between filmmakers, producers and distributors from all over the world.
