“The AFIN Festival just honoured me with a best actress award for playing Annie in South of Heaven…probably the most wonderful experience I’ve ever had making a character come to life. Thank you AFIN, I guess it just goes to show that joy in what you do shines through.”
Evangeline Lilly (Actress - South Of Heaven, Lost, Ant-Man, Avengers: Endgame) - AFIN Winner 2021
About AFIN International
Entries are selected and screened based on their artistic value, originality, globally distributable appeal, production values/quality, and narrative content. The festival includes live screening nights in Brisbane, Australia which are attended by film makers and film lovers alike, and a formal red carpet awards night.
Sales Agents & Distributors
We have direct links with international sales agents and distributors and make special introductions for certain awards winners (Best Feature and Best Australian Film), to assist them in achieving success.
Networking & Global Connection
An open, and market orientated film industry event, AFIN supports innovation and exploration in film, and provides networking opportunities for local and international film makers.
AFIN aims to aid in the development and encouragement of film makers regardless of nationality or experience level, and revels in supporting worldwide cultural exchange via cinematic experience.
Truly Equal Playing Field
We value, and seek to recognise films and screenplays which are engaging, thought provoking, and innovative; be that through concept originality, or exploring narrative, premise or style in a new way.
AFIN selects films which celebrate and execute high production values, but also understands that budget restraints can sometimes factor into technical production constraints, and takes this into consideration when making official selections.
Feedback for Entrants
AFIN aims to provide a platform for filmmakers and writers to be seen and heard as best as possible. With this goal, filmmakers don't need to submit their projects for multiple categories to be considered for different awards: in fact, each project only needs to be submitted for one category.
With each submission, the project will be considered for several awards, and every entry will be offered feedback. All of this happens with a very affordable price.
