Underground Exposure is a Film Festival and Screenplay competition for those of us who are unwilling to compromise our vision. We are dedicated to the Filmmakers and writers who are unyielding to the Industry forces that drain the creativity from todays Cinema with their sole quest for "MARKETABLE" material.
Our goal is to provide a venue for films that might not otherwise be exhibited. However, films of a controversial, confrontational, radical, provocative, subversive, offensive, obscene, rebellious, profane, conspiratorial, corruptive, volatile, violent, blasphemous, anarchic, or otherwise irresponsible nature are especially encouraged.
Greetings! Eclipse Channel is hosting their very first online movie festival, January 15th-18th, the next solar eclipse! We are looking for new, unique, original and compelling content that will be judged and broadcast on our new HD player. Go to www.Eclipsechannel.com for more information.
The European Independent Film Festival (ÉCU) continues its commitment of being at the centre of discovery, promotion and projection of the very best independent filmmaking talent from around the world.
ÉCU will showcase films that demonstrate quality, innovation and independence in both form and content. There are fifteen categories of films in this highly esteemed competitive festival ranging including features, shorts, documentaries, animation and student films.
While ÉCU’s goal is to bring worldwide attention to European independent filmmakers, there are also four foreign categories open to independent filmmakers from the Americas, Africa and Asia.
The European Independent Film Festival (ÉCU) has established itself as a fantastic arena for independent filmmakers from around the world to screen their films to large audiences made up of a cinema-loving public who are seeking alternatives to the offerings of major studios, as well as to agents, talent scouts, production company representatives, distributors and established producers looking for new projects and raw talent. Of course several hundred independent filmmakers from around the world will be in Paris to participate in the ÉCU.
-Scott Hillier, President of The European Independent Film Festival.

Gdynia Film Festival takes place on May 7-12, 2012. It is one of the biggest film events in Poland and the only one which promotes the Polish cinema to such a large scale.
