British Independent Film Festival    

Regular Deadline: Friday, January 8th

The British Independent Film Festival is an event designed to showcase independent films from around the world with a focus on British talent.

Our aim is to bring maximum exposure to independent films, by having multiple screenings of your movie and national press coverage. We arrange interviews for

film-makers, a red carpet experience at your Leicester Square premiere and ensure a packed house watches your film.

We are now also working with the incredible script services company ScriptUp who are sponsoring some new awards! The Best Unproduced Screenplay will take home the coveted title of "ScriptUp Select" while 4 lucky runners up will receive a full ScriptUp service for their script worth £150!

Also, movies that make our Official Selection are nominated for our prestigious awards at the closing Awards Ceremony.
