Welcome to the seventh season of Indie World Film Festival!

Indie World Film Festival is a yearly film festival with live screenings in Malta. The first 6 seasons were held as a monthly film festival. But from the 7th season onwards, it is decided to conduct as a yearly film festival. It focuses on celebrating Film Makers and Creators around the world, who take a risk and do experiments in Film Making. Each year, we hold a screening for our hand-selected jury members, made up of industry personnel and film fans, where we showcase some of that year's nominated films. After the screening is over, the jury members vote to decide the winners. Screenings are a jury-member only event, and are not open to the general public.
