Welcome to The Magic World of Fantasy & Sci-Fi Film Festival!

“Imagination is more important than knowledge.

For knowledge is limited to all we know and understand,

while imagination embraces the entire world,

and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
― Michael Scott, The Warlock

Our film festival is dedicated to fantasy and science fiction independent films. 

Imagination in cinema is the most important factor both for the creator and for a spectator. 

We love fantasy and we love sci-fi fiction. 

The main goal of our film festival is to create the most accessible and instantaneous direct contact between the filmmaker and the relevant target audience from around the world, to give and receive the whole range of emotions from the film and from the audience instantly, live, cozy, comfortable and safe.

Filmmakers can create or widen their audience among the participants, and the genre fans can watch the best independent fantasy and sci-fi films and meet the filmmakers live online in our Screening Room.

What does the filmmaker get at the festival:

  1. Unique screening format. Live screening of films in an online screening room with access by invitations.

  2. International target audience. Access from anywhere in the world via the Internet,

  3. Protection against unauthorized copying of the film. We use the secure Adobe Connect system, which does not provide for the possibility of downloading videos from the audience while watching. In addition, to enhance protection against unauthorized copying: we use watermarks in the form of laurel Official Selection. 

  4. Our festival is a private event, only guests by invitation can attend and watch films.

  5. The filmmaker can appreciate the instant reaction of viewers from around the world because everyone is watching a movie at the same time. They give feedback, comments, create the opinion of the audience. One of the festival awards - Audience Award - expresses the opinion of the audience.

  6. The opportunity to introduce the film live and interact.

  7. Information about the film and its awards is published in social media so can increase the fan audience. In addition, we reward the Fan Award - a reward for a film with the maximum number of fan votes from social networks.

  8. Categories and nominations in each festival are determined by the jury, regardless of the audience's opinion.

  9. Printable high-quality Award-signs are well suited for printing out and web hosting.

The festival is an invitation-only event with online access. 

Only registered attendees can access the screening room.
