We know how hard it is for an indie filmmaker to produce and distribute their works.
Mindie is the tool that every filmmaker needs, in order to showcase and get recognitions for their film: We have created monthly edition 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 work is privately screened every month and evaluated by an international team of experts in the industry.
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.
Submissions to the festival will close at the end of each month, our jury will select the winners on the 20th of every month.
