Miami Independent Film Festival: 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 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 work is privately screened every month and evaluated by a 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.

Portland Horror Film Festival: We’re all about independent horror. That means, we’re looking for horror films made by small indie studios, and even student filmmakers. Independent filmmakers are the lifeblood of the Horror genre. Commercial horror is a genre often stuck in a rut; it’s the independent filmmakers who innovate and create new horrific ideas, and who become the new masters of horror. Clive Barker, Wes Craven, Eli Roth, John Carpenter, and many more notable names, all came out of left field with small indie films that changed the face of horror. More than any other genre, horror relies on new filmmakers with new ways to scare us. It’s our goal to showcase and foster the next generation.

The Quarantine Film Festival is an international short film festival aimed towards young and unfamiliar artists under 35 years. It is held annually in the summer in July. Festival screenings are in open air - straight on the beach in romantic atmosphere in front of the unique fishing village near Varna, Bulgaria. The festival is organized completely voluntary. We believe that art should be free and easily accessible to normal people. There are no organization salaries, no admission fees and the screenings are with free entrance, no tickets. We rely on donations and personal contributions. It is a massive success that happens not with lots of funding but with lots of love and dedication. Despite popularizing young authors the other main goal of the festival is to protect the uniqueness and urban format of the fishing village “The Quarantine” which is the last standing fishing village in the region. It is in danger of disappearing because a luxury residential complex is being built on the coastline behind it. We intend to turn the place into a culture and art zone and to preserve the fishermen’s way of life.
