Indie Hype Film Festival

25 August 2017 - 2 September 2017

‘INDIE hype’, discovers and honours the achievements of filmmakers who produce exceptional independent feature and short films.

Attracting both experienced industry leaders and talented new filmmakers; ‘INDIE hype’ is an incomparable, genuinely international awards competition, not a traditional film festival. INDIE hype is about helping independent filmmakers gain the credibility and promotion they justly deserve. INDIE hype award winners will be assisted in marketing their film alongside the INDIE hype team, and in garnering further successes with other screenings and awards at other prestigious film festivals worldwide.

With over 9 years of film festival and cinema exhibition experience, the INDIE hype organizers have developed a new platform festival incorporating the evolving technology of digital formats and digital cinema while maintaining an outlook for the preservation of story-telling on traditional film gauges.
