Film festivals are the one of those places which celebrates creativity, art and cinema at its best. And anyway, they do more than simply showcase feel-good movies or provide sneak glances at upcoming hit movies — they give new and eclectic filmmakers a platform, honor creative personnel for their hard labor and well-crafted stories, and remind moviegoers of the importance of equality and participation in entertainment.
To all our fellow Indie Filmmakers, at WFCN we have more than 400 handpicked film festivals where you can submit your precious work of art. You can also showcase your film by making a portfolio in WFCN.
