The British Independent Film Festival is a festival run by independent filmmakers for independent filmmakers. It is organised by the Film Festival Guild and therefore has links to festivals around the world. 


We also run a SCREENPLAY COMPETITION every year. Previous winners have gone on to receive production deals, representation and options on their screenplays. 


Our Screenplay Competition seeks to find innovative new screenplays, from writers looking to bring attention to their scripts. Each year one winner will receive an Award for Best New Screenplay, where they will be presented with their Award at a ceremony in Leicester Square during the festival. They will also receive invites to the famous After Party, where festival staff will ensure they're introduced to Producers, Distributors and Financiers.   

The Festival provides opportunities for independent filmmakers to have their films screened at great red carpet-style venues to a passionate audience of film professionals, film students, journalists and the general public.
