- Week-long festival of top films sees third annual Indy Film Library Awards draw to a close
- Submissions open for 2022/23 season of Indy Film Library’s annual contest
Indy Film Library (IFL) announced the winners of its 2022 festival last week – showcased them at events held online and at the Filmhuis Cavia in Amsterdam. The movies were selected on the basis of both their storytelling and the technical skills exhibited by their cast and crew, in a celebration of the best and brightest talents that the independent film industry has to offer.
The April showcase drew to a close another 12-month season, during which IFL reviewed hundreds of films on its website, providing crucial feedback to independent artists. At the same time, the site played host to four extra showcase events, celebrating experimental, student, horror and YouTube films from around the world.
Following the completion of that 2021/22 season, Indy Film Library has re-opened for submissions, so if filmmakers have a piece for which they would like professional, independent feedback, they are invited to send IFL the finished product as soon as possible. A new submission button for FilmFreeway can now be found via the IFL website.
“I am excited to get the ball rolling for another year of incredible independent cinema,” IFL Chief Editor Jack Brindelli said. “The latest season was our biggest and best yet – and finally saw us return to cinemas – but with your help, we can make the next edition even better!”
To help expand the festival in 2023, IFL has also launched a crowdfunding campaign on GoFundMe. More information can be found here.
