“The Biggest Little Fest In Europe” - The Hollywood Reporter

Rated among the top 5 Film Festivals worldwide for Independent Films by American film critic Chris Gore in his esteemed “Ultimate Film Festival Guide”, and ranked “Top 25 Coolest Festivals in the World” by MovieMaker, Oldenburg has fostered its success with a strong commitment to innovative and Independent filmmaking.

“If there's anything that could be considered the Promised Land of Independent Cinema in Europe today, it is Oldenburg.” - Accred - L'actualité des festivals de cinéma

Labelled ‘the German Sundance’ by Variety, Hollywood Reporter, and Screen International, amongst others, Oldenburg has evolved while preserving its intimate atmosphere and founding purpose: to celebrate and support the diverse voices and visions of independent filmmakers, to honor the creativity of the artists upon which the Festival depends, and to create a unique experience and inspiring meeting place for filmmakers, audiences, and media professionals.

“Oldenburg - renown for its determination, cinephilia, and openness for the extremes - impresses with its brilliant programming.” - GRIP

Additionally, in an effort to raise awareness and build bridges between worlds through the common language of film, Oldenburg is the only Film Festival in the world that annually screens part of its regular program to incarcerated individuals who share the experience with members of the general public in an actual high-security Prison environment, known as ‘The Alcatraz of the North’.

“Oldenburg thrives as a discovery channel.” - Screen International

In addition to supporting the discovery of new artists, Oldenburg has hosted the German Premieres of films by such acclaimed filmmakers as Darren Aronofsky, Brian De Palma, Steven Soderbergh, Michael Polish, Johnnie To, Chan-wook Park, Monte Hellmann, & Takeshi Kitano amongst others. Guests of honor have included Jim McBride, Larry Clark, Philippe de Broca, Andrzej Zulawski, Ken Russell, Jerry Schatzberg, James Toback, Radley Metzger, Ted Kotcheff, Phedon Papmichael, George Armitage, Christophe Honoré, Edward R. Pressman, & Bruce Robinson who have all attended the festival for Retrospectives of their work.

“Just as impressive as the films was the festival itself, which, under the inspired direction of Torsten Neumann, combined intelligent cinephilia with a laid-back atmosphere of democratic equality.” - Sight and Sound

Nicolas Cage, Seymour Cassel, Asia Argento, Keira Knightley, Deborah Kara Unger, Mira Sorvino, Bobcat Goldthwait, Michael Wadleigh, Joanna Cassidy, Luke Wilson, Ben Gazzara, Stacy Keach, Amanda Plummer, Keith Carradine, Sean Baker, & Matthew Modine are amongst many who have attended as honored guests or for Tributes in their honor.

“Alongside Venice and Toronto, Oldenburg is considered one of the most important Autumn Festivals for Independent Cinema” - de Telegraaf

Rated #1 in Germany on The Most Important Autumn Film Festivals List for and by the German Film Industry (Blickpunkt Film), and #3 internationally after Venice & TIFF, Oldenburg is regarded as “one of the most important European festivals for independent cinema" (Tagesschau).

“Oldenburg is a pilgrimage for cineastes.”- Die Zeit

Branching off from The Indie Gathering International Film Festival comes the United Latino Film Festival. The Indie Gathering began in 1996, and through all our years of accepting film submissions, we have recognized the outstanding quality of Spanish-language films and a greater demand for a Hispanic/Latino film festival. The United Latino Film Festival exists to showcase the Hispanic/Latino independent filmmaker. Our mission is to encourage filmmakers through a competitive showcase of independent features, documentaries, shorts, and music videos. Filmmakers participate in their screenings and after the films speak with audience members who seek a closer look into the creative process.

15TH INTERNATIONAL ETHNOGRAPHIC FILM FEST MUSEUM OF GALICIAN PEOPLE

MICE, Mostra Internacional de Cinema Etnográfico Museo do Pobo Galego, opens the announcement for 15 edition, that will take place on March 23-29 2020.

It’s possible to register films of any length, from 7th Novembre 2019 to 8th January 2020.

The MICE, Museum do Pobo Galego, supports the cinema sensitive to the ethnographic way to understand the reality, that explores the new ethnographic topics and that invites to reflect on the process of composition of a cinematographic work with interest in the complex knowledge of the sociocultural phenomena. We would like to show various forms to present topics of the anthropological field, so much from the contents as from the audiovisual language.

The MICE supports the realisation of this type of cinema, especially the one that is created in our country and also be a space for exhibition, training and debate about the ethnographic cinema and the (audio) visual anthropology.

There are a number of challenges, awards and prizes for the Micro (2min), Mini (5min), and Short (20min) film categories within the genre.

The 2 min Sci-Fi Challenge is a competition to create a 2 min sci-fi themed film for the competition. The LSF Sci-Fi 90 Sec Challenge was the first incarnation... it has now evolved into something bigger and is just part of the whole "Windies" festival. The event is completely independent of Wild Indie's productions. There is also the "Green Screen Challenge", a challenge aimed at educators providing some footage for chroma-keying to create a fantasy situation of your choice.

The festival is open to all (UK, Worldwide, The Up/Down/Side/Side Dimensions, even the Outer Spiral Arm (of the Galaxy). English language films are preferred; other languages should be closed captioned to English. Awards will be for Best film, Best SFX, Best Score, Best Cinematography.

The genre is Sci-Fi & Fantasy. So that's anything aliens, weird tech, dragons, superheroes, A.I., manmade monsters, dystopian futures, bizarre pasts, time travel, and just about anything a bit odd that might fit. Originality will be preferred but “Fan Films” are welcome, although please note, we must adhere to copyright guidelines and restrictions of the original IP owners.

Other genres and elements such as comedy, horror, or romance, can feature as long as a significant portion of the story is the festival themes.

The opening date for entries is 20th July, 2019. The closing date is 4th January, 2020. Screenings of entries will be on 1st February, 2020.
