Filmmaking as a Lifelong Passion
We are searching for filmmakers and writers who are passionate about the craft of film. We support those who pursue film as a career or otherwise. We are on the look out for film in its purest form; a well-told story without the need for big budgets or fancy technology, but filmmakers with courage and determination.
The PUFF Indie Film Awards
One Indie Film Award is presented to a filmmaker or a team of filmmakers who have made outstanding achievements each year. The winner will be awarded with an investment in developing their next feature film project (this project must be over 90 minutes in length). The winner(s) will also have exclusive access to PUFF's affiliations, which include over 350 film crews, actors and technicians from around the world.
Diversity & Women Filmmakers
PUFF's film programs aim to creating discussions and changing perspectives. We encourage women and people from minority groups to have a voice by making films.
In many countries, less than 10% of funding for film is awarded to female directors. PUFF has been involved in partnerships to help finance and make connections for women filmmakers. PUFF has volunteer mentors who can help you with writing proposals or connect you with other film festivals.
Please note that all female filmmakers from the Middle East, Africa and South East Asia countries are eligible for full submission waivers. Below are links to more online resources.
