|Description: ||The New Renaissance Film Festival (NRFF) provides a showcase stage in LONDON, UK, for talented filmmakers and screenwriters from around the world. Our numerous award possibilities give independents the chance to receive the recognition they deserve.|
|Objective: ||CELEBRATING INDEPENDENT ARTISTIC EXPRESSION|
The Renaissance in the 15th century was a time when art was at its height. With the digital revolution artists have a golden opportunity, once again, to shape culture and to create art for the sake of beauty or truth, to reflect, to question and to enhance peace.
This is why we have established the New Renaissance Film Festival, in LONDON, one of Europe’s greatest film cities – to support and champion the first wave of independent filmmakers and screenwriters in this new era.
During the festival we will show about 40-60 short films. Simultaneously, we run a screenplay competition and will present the awards to the winners during the festival.
Very close to our heart is the Young Talent Award. This is an award for screenwriting and for short films, that will be presented to young talent between the ages of 16-21.
Film is a unique medium, and we hope to help new filmmakers and screenwriters to fulfill their dream in telling their stories and showcase their work.
