An established and recognized magazine on the film circuit, Independent Film Quarterly brings the Independent Film Quarterly Film & New Media Festival. The festival provides a platform where filmmakers can showcase their work (features, shorts, new media, animation, music videos and documentaries), increase opportunities for producers and maximize potential for distribution, press and industry recognition. Festival finalists will receive a first-look distribution deal along with an exclusive opportunity to meet one-on-one with an industry professional in their field. Award winners will receive an exclusive profile interview in Independent Film Quarterly. "Independent Film Quarterly brought you the interviews, now we bring you the Festival."


Independent Film Quarterly Film & New Media Festival is a first of its kind where a film magazine brings together both new media and film in a competitive-festival setting. The Festival will screen a selection of short- and long-form works that exhibit strong personal visions combined with the highest standards of artistic merit and technical achievement.

The Festival aims to discover, showcase, and celebrate the work of today's up-and-comers and established professionals. In addition to features, documentaries, music videos, animations and short films, the Festival is interested in receiving new media content from artists, directors, and producers developing webisodes and web series.

All qualifying projects will be judged by a jury of notable industry executives, with finalists being viewed by distributors for possible online, video, VOD, theatrical, or broadcast distribution. Award Winners will receive exclusive profile interviews in Independent Film Quarterly.
