Our Mission: 
With a passion for the art of filmmaking, the Chandler International Film Festival aims to support independent filmmakers from all over the world and their filmmaking. We provide a platform through which projects are reviewed, judged, and honored for their uniqueness, creativity, and storytelling ability.

 


Our Mission: 
The objective of the Film Festival is to provide support to independent filmmakers through reviewing, judging, marketing, and distribution networking, and trying to overcome any other obstacles which potentially hinder the artist’s ability to create. 

Submission & Evaluation Process: 
We create an opportunity for filmmakers to get their films judged and let them compete with other filmmakers. We perform a comprehensive evaluation process and select only high-quality films.

The evaluation process is a three stage process: 
• Reviewing for official selection by the jury. 
• Screening for set of filmmakers and audience to review and vote the best film. 
• Declaration of Winners every month, including “Best Picture of the Month” 
• Best picture of the month gets a screening at the annual event and compete again with other monthly winners for “Best of the Best Picture”

Awards & Prizes

Awards & Prizes: 
We award the best independent filmmakers after a comprehensive evaluation process. All monthly "Best Picture" winners get laurels and optional trophy and certificate!

Filmmakers will have access to the annual festival screening in January, Red Carpet Interviews, Awards Ceremony and Networking opportunities in Chandler, Arizona.
