How it works:

Every month we take indie movies to the people in the EU & North America.

We showcase a double feature: one major indie film from the festival circuit (released less than 12 months prior) and one newly discovered gem from our submitters.

At the end of the 12 months, all 12 winning submitters are screened at our New York Best Fest Showdown event.

All semi-finalists, finalists, and selected entrants receive industry connections including introductions to streaming services, agents, and producers.

The submitter whose movie we show is awarded a $350 screening fee

The winner of the Best Fest Showdown wins a $1500 prize
