FESTIVAL OVERVIEW

Virgin spring cinefest is a monthly international film festival which has been created to showcase independent art-house films from around the world. The festival has been named in honor of Ingmar Bergman’s classic film ‘Virgin Spring’. The aims of the Festival is to act as a platform for aspiring filmmakers working in all genres and irrespective of budget and limitations. Each month, our Jury will award the best films through private screenings, and make a special interview with the winner of the Best Picture (Film of the Month) award. The winners from each month will be screened each year at an annual live festival which includes filmmaker Q&As, stalls, special guests, and awards presentations. All the monthly winners will also compete for the GOLDEN GALAXY AWARD (Best film of the year) in November 2022. Submissions are accepted exclusively through Film Freeway. Please visit the submission page for more details.

OFFICIAL SELECTION

VIRGIN SPRING CINEFEST : A FESTIVAL TO CELEBRATE THE LIBERATION AND FREEDOM OF VISUAL STORYTELLING

Welcome to the Virgin Spring Cinefest. It is the platform that every filmmaker needs, in order to showcase and get recognitions for their film. The objective of the Film Festival is to support independent filmmakers through reviewing, judging, marketing, and distribution networking, and trying to overcome any other obstacles which potentially hinder the artist’s ability to create. We have created monthly editions to give continuity to the selection process and a steady feedback to the filmmakers. Instead of waiting for months before getting an answer from the festival, filmmakers are immediately contacted if selected. Their works are privately screened every month and evaluated by a team of experts in the industry. All entries do not compete against each other. Instead, entries are judged against a high standard of merit and are scored accordingly. The monthly winners will then compete to be screened at our annual event. The event aims to create a strong relationship between filmmakers, producers and distributors from all over the world.

Hi and thank you for having us in your amazing festival. I hope we can be apart of it again in the near future. Thank you so much.

Getting selected to be included in your Festival for our Pilot script was fantastic! Then getting to be a Finalist and an Award Winner is the best news. Thank you for a wonderful experience in your Festival!

Michelle Kenney

To be selected to be included in your Film Festival or Screenwriting Contest is a reward in itself. To be a Finalist or Award Winner for my Short screenplay, NOT AN EXIT, is recognizing what it means to have that motivating force. It is much more than a trophy; it is a message that my screenplay is alive and a viable product. With that said, I look forward to placing other scripts in future competitions.

It was an honor that not just was my movie 1888 selected but it also won multiple awards at Virgin Spring Cinefest including Best Actress, Best Music and Best Director. It is a highly recommended film festival that’s not just prestigious but also very professionally managed.

Thanks for the award…
Great festival, especially for an independent filmmaker! The selection of films would definitely leave you a feeling that your work is presented in a good company. Networking and communication are outstanding – you will meet not only a team of nice persons but would be also able to share an experience with people who are already professionals in film production.

Also, It was a great experience for me personally. Thank you

Virgin Spring is a wonderful film festival fo rmany reasons and one of the most important is the opportunity they offer for a filmmaker to show their work and actually be appreciated.

Rainer Bartesch

I’m so happy and grateful, that my Oratorio-Video “Our World is on Fire” became the winner at this festival! This award will help to create even more awareness for global warming and for the need to transform the capitalism economy into one driven by humanity and solidarity and empathy instead of just maximizing profits… Right now I do a global virtual performance of the oratorio too. EVERYONE who wants to join the movement for true humanity and nature protection is INVITED TO TAKE PART! Download the instructions letter here: https://our-world-is-on-fire.org
and join the global virtual choir! See you and hear you! Rainer

I want to thank the Virgin Spring Cinefest for acknowledging my anthology script, “Stories for a Summer Beach Party”. It originated from four separate shorts that didn’t go anywhere, so I compiled them into a fun anthology. It’s nice that this collection of tales caught their eye at VSC. Thank you again!
