Northern Festival of Cinema

Event descrption

An Event perfect for Filmmakers, and Film lovers alike! The NIFOC is a day-long celebration of Up-and-Coming/As-yet undiscovered Filmmakers and Creatives, and the Content that they have worked painstakingly to produce. This Event not only dedicates time to the Screening and Awarding of some of these Talents, but will also give them a rare chance to meet and network will fellow aspiring Creative Minds, as well as some already established names. The Festival and both its’ location and creation, were devised right here in the North-East. As we represent a generation of Filmmakers, often overlooked by the South-favouring mainstream of the Industry, we aim to give back to the hotbed of creativity the North truly is.



Creating the event

Initially the idea was that myself and my frequent collaborator Jack Addison will create this event as one of our university projects to showcase other university students. In two weeks the festival received over 300 film submissions and a sold-out venue with over 100 tickets sold. Due to the demand, I decided to direct the festival as a seasonal festival to showcase the best independent films around the world in Newcastle Upon Tyne.
