About Mirage International Film Festival
Mirage International Film Festival (MIFF) seeks to become the premiere annual event for independent filmmakers worldwide. Our mission is to help filmmakers present their films to audiences, industry professionals and distributors from around the globe. In order to best achieve this, the festival strives to create an immersive, high energy environment that promotes networking and the awe-inspiring wonderment that only great cinema is capable of producing.

MIFF strives to represent the true spirit of the independent film festival by providing an environment where aspiring writers and filmmakers can connect with agents, sales companies, distributors and other industry professionals. We do this by ensuring all films screened and all competition winners at the festival are independently financed and produced, and all films selected are free and clear to be signed or picked up for distribution. It’s our hope that this assurance to both filmmakers and sales agents/distributors fosters an environment where deserving films can be recognized and the spirit of the true Independent Film Festival can thrive.

For the 2014 Festival, MIFF will screen over 250 feature and short films over five days this summer in Las Vegas, Nevada. Through our 4 competition programs: Feature Films, Short Films, New Media Films, and Original Screenplays, MIFF will award prizes totaling more than $40,000 in 2014. With a plethora of distributors, sales & production companies and production executives guaranteed to attend, filmmakers and attendees will have unprecedented access to industry professionals.

FESTIVAL MISSION

The Mirage International Film Festival’s mission is to help filmmakers present their films to audiences, industry professionals and distributors from around the globe. In order to best achieve this, the festival strives to create an immersive, high energy environment that promotes networking and the awe-inspiring wonderment that only great cinema is capable of producing.

Beyond supporting emerging and established filmmakers, our various special events, educational series and film marketplace are specifically designed to help attendees of all levels expand their industry acumen, form wide ranging industry connections and foster their overall careers. The spirit of the festival will permeate from every screening, meeting and attendee. The Festival will screen over 250 feature and short films over five days this summer in Las Vegas, Nevada. With a plethora of distributors, sales & production companies and production executives guaranteed to attend, filmmakers and attendees will have unprecedented access to industry professionals.

FEATURE-LENGTH FILMS
The Festival welcomes submissions for feature films in narrative and documentary categories. All selected features will participate in the festival’s MAIN EVENT competition. We strongly believe that a film from any category could take the Festival’s 2014 Best Feature award, be it Darkest Before the Dawn, Cinema Mavericks, the Dockect or any category. Entering all films into the MAIN EVENT puts everyone on an even playing field in the completion and recognizes the best from across all different styles and genres in the independent film community.

In addition, however Mirage International Film Festival offers filmmakers several competitive sub-categories designed specifically to recognize excellence within various genres and help promote the various styles, methods and techniques that populate the ever expanding world of cinema.

  • Main Event  -  main competition program for all eligible feature-length films
  • Darkest Before the Dawn  -  dedicated to showcasing feature-length genre films
  • Cinema Mavericks  -  feature-length films with budgets less than $1.5 million USD
  • Newcomer  -  available exclusively for first-time, feature-length directors
  • WorldCine  -  feature-length films which were financed and filmed outside of North America
  • The Dockect  -  non-fiction feature-length documentary films

SHORT-LENGTH FILMS
The Festival offers a robust competition program for short films, divided into institutional and non-institutional categories.

Film Blueprint Competition Category

All epic projects start with a vision. And like the building of monolith skyscrapers that dot the city landscape, the first step in realizing that vision is putting your ideas on paper... as blueprints. This concept resonates strong in Mirage International Film Festival’s Original Screenwriting competition Film Blueprint.

We believe that all great films started as great scripts! Film Blueprint seeks to discover the next generation of great writers and provide a forum to highlight and recognize their scripts. This competitive category is judged by a distinguished panel comprised of top literary agents, screenwriters and development executives.

New Media Marvels Competition Category

Mirage International Film Festival's New Media Marvels competitive program is designed to bring attention to the emerging world of new media. With the growing prevalence and wide reach of online streaming video sites, the internet is providing filmmakers with an easy and affordable avenue to present their alternative media to a global audience.

New Media Marvels is designed to recognize and reward exceptional work in the expanding new media landscape. With the increasing number of success stories of TV series, films and documentaries being developed and produced based on new media content, the Festival's New Media Marvels program provides a solid forum for these new age filmmakers to showcase their stories and network with distributors, producers and industry executives.

THIS YEAR THE FESTIVAL WILL BE AWARDING MORE THAN 40,000 IN CASH PRIZES. ALSO THE FESTIVAL WILL HAVE MORE THAN TWO DOZEN DISTRIBUTORS, GUARANTEED TO ATTEND.

We thank all filmmakers for their support and look forward to seeing some amazing submissions.
