Sunset Film Festival Los Angeles

MISSION:  The mission is simple: Promote filmmakers and screen writers.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL:  Lots of films are rejected at film festivals. One of the reasons is that there are too many submissions. Producing a film is one thing. 

The next step is submitting your film to film festivals. Then you realize that nothing is really happening. The Sunset Film Festival is different.

Giving filmmakers and screenwriters the opportunity to be noticed is our priority. Distributors love films screened at Festivals.

They love them even better when they are awarded.


FOUNDER:  The festival is brought to you by Mark Mos, Kodak Entertainment Imaging Awarded filmmaker and Film Premieres organizer.

Mark has organized pre-premiere film presentations such as: “Gladiator” (Russell Crowe), “Mission Impossible 2” (Tom Cruise),

“Gone in 60 seconds” (Nicholas Cage, Angelina Jolie), “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” (Jim Carrey), and much more.

 

He was in charge of the 5th Youth and Children Film Festival. Mark Mos is also a filmmaker; he has master’s degree in TV and Film Production.

His films were shown on film festivals in cities such as Los Angeles, Chicago or Salt Lake City and also European countries: Hungary, Poland and Romania.

IMPORTANT:  100% of submission fees go directly to promote festival and rent auditorium for screenings. Submit your film with Sunset Film Festival. 

This is the key to go further with your passion.

Online, on-air and in person, this is BUFF. And so said the voice of BUFF which greeted the masses of online followers with the May 31 announcement of this year’s opening feature.

From September, the 2011 British Urban Film Festival will be coming at ya with a whole new look which means, finally, that the buffest fi...

Madeira Film Festival

The Madeira Film Festival intends to be Europe’s most exclusive and independent festival. Held at the prestigious Reid’s Palace Hotel The Madeira Film Festival serves as a platform to showcase independent feature, short and documentary films from directors around the world. Indicative of Madeira’s continued commitment to preserve the Natural History, flora and fauna of the island, the festival will present a special environmental category screening worldwide nature orientated films. The aim of the Madeira Film Festival is to encourage creativity in all aspects of film production, not dependent on financial and physical restrictions, gender, geographical location, age or ability. We acknowledge and encourage film making through diversity and ‘out of the box’ thinking and we pay special attention to films ( shorts, docs and features ) pertaining to the environment and it’s relevance and importance in the world we live in today.

The world’s largest Laurissilva forest is located on the island of Madeira. In 1999 the 15,000 hectare indigenous ‘living relic’ was awarded the status of UNESCO World Heritage Site. Through the medium of film MFF intends to enhance education and global awareness of the Laurissilva and its importance to the ecological balance of Madeira thus sustaining the endemic flora and fauna.

The Madeira Film Festival recognizes the integrity of filmmakers around the world and consequently will present the ‘Laurissilva Award’ to the best documentary, short, feature and nature oriented film judged by an International Jury. MFF acts as a service to the local community and audience as a launchpad providing an attractive slate of films.

We are a festival with cultural aspirations. We are both a public and a pilgrimage festival. One of our roles is to discover talent and support, not necessarily financially. Although we aren’t in the business of film distribution we believe festivals play an ever increasing role in distribution due to the advent of new technology. MFF has a small yet critical role to play in this formula by helping the viewer at home decide what to watch i.e. Who is in it? What’s the film about? What have I heard about it? Basically festivals can help push the right button.
