Festival Overview

Held in Nice one week before the Cannes international film festival in the South of France

Now celebrating our 4th running year, the Nice International Filmmaker Festival 2018 is strategically placed a few days before the Cannes International Film Festival in the south of France, naturally filling our venue with a wealth of talent from around the world. This is to provide our attendees with the best experience possible to grow and develop their careers.

Year after year we are praised by filmmakers for the opportunities that unlock upon entering and participating in our festival. Workshops, guest speakers, film premieres, financing talks, director Q&As, film screenings, networking events, industry professional panels and the chance to socialise with like-minded people will undoubtedly aid in future filmmaking ventures. This is perfect for either an individual seeking funding for an unproduced screenplay or a finished production seeking distribution - we are able to cater to all. All of this is neatly wrapped in a week-long showcasing of films that concludes with our spectacular awards ceremony gala dinner, where the winners from each of our categories walk away with a prestigious trophy award, in recognition of filmmakers' talents and achievements.

We have built a small by exceptional network and industry experts who offer invaluable business and commercial advice. In many past scenarios, our attending experts have distributed countless films into international marketplaces. We have the people and skills in our professional team to make this happen.

We can create a ripple effect for your movie to be seen around the world - it all starts here by entering today.
