Portsmouth International Film Festival

Independent Film Festival.

About

We look to support the best narrative and factual film content out there including both short films and feature films. We look for strong and compelling stories, high production value and exciting cinematography to put into the Festival.

When it comes to Independent Films, we have had many successful years in the industry.

We have been a part of independent film distribution, independent movie making and the management of other International Film Festivals. We are a family run business which we started in 2009, we currently have over 40 films in the market and have helped set up and supported five other film festivals, while running 3 ourselves. What started as a family passion has now become our life’s work.

Every year many of our participants and visitors tell us that highlight of the event is the socializing VIP dinner held on the first day of the festival, the VIP evening events held every evening and of course our Awards night.

We also give budding new producers and directors the chance to get some funding towards their next movie.

Awards

We typically have 35-40 awards across all categories, including Best Film of the Festival, Best Feature, Best Short Film, Best Documentary, Best Animation, Best Short Documentary, Best Comedy, Best Student Film, Best Horror/Thriller Film, Best Director, Cinematography, Original Score, Screenplay, Editing, Visual Effects, Sound Design, Costume Design, Production Design, Hair & Make-Up and more!
