IndieFlicks is a monthly awards festival, falling on the first Wednesday of each month.
IndieFlicks is the UK’s best monthly film festival supporting the best up and coming filmmakers from across the world. IndieFlicks is continuously growing, hosting screenings both in Manchester and Liverpool, and have plans in place to spread across the UK.
However IndieFlicks isn’t just a monthly film festival, if you submit to one of our monthly screenings, you have the chance to be part of our Biennial Festival.
IndieFlicks is now one year old and unlike other annual festivals we
have a Biennial Festival(a festival every 2 years). Our Biennial is comprised from all of our award winners from each month over the 2 years. We are currently at the half way mark and our second season is about to commence.
“They only pick the best films for their screenings so it’s not only a great festival to enter, but a great film night to attend. I’ve enjoyed every film i’ve seen so far.”
Chris Cronin, Director.
How our monthly Festival works…
Our Monthly Festival is a showcase of Short films from around the world. Showing between 8-12 films at each event, two films will be selected to win either one of our awards:
The People’s Choice Award
The Directors Choice AwardThe evening is set in to two halves. Our ‘Short Shorts’; films 15 minutes and under. These films go up for ‘The People’s Choice Award’; This is evidently voted for our audiences on the night.In the second half of the night we host our ,‘Feature Short’, one film between 15 and 45 minutes. This is seen as our headliner for the event. This film is awarded, ‘The Directors Choice Award’, one that our Judging panel felt deserves recognition.
By winnning one of these awards you gain access to our coveted Biennial event in Manchester in 2017.“Not only is IndieFlicks a brilliant opportunity to network within the Manchester filmmaking community, it offers insight into short filmmaking approaches worldwide.”
Martyn Ellis, Sound Engineer, Noise Four
Manchester is the biggest creative city in the UK, bustling with up and coming Directors, Producers and creatives all round. Our monthly events have people from across Europe in attendance, with an open Q&A for all filmmakers that attend our screenings. It gives our audiences a better understanding of the industry and greater possibilities of developing as a filmmaker.
