The Coimbatore International Film Festival is an International Independent film festival.

It aspires to promote, recognize and support independent filmmakers throughout the world by hosting a variety of awards in order to provide
the best opportunities for filmmakers, helping them receive recognition.

We welcome submissions from a range of genres including short films, documentaries, features, animations and screenplays.

Our objective is to provide support for film-makers through reviewing, judging, marketing, and distribution networking.

We believe our film festival will give filmmakers a chance to showcase their work to a very wide range of audiences from many different parts of the world.

Coimbatore International Film Festival is based in Coimbatore, Southern Part of India, with our jury’s located around the world. All the films will go through a reviewable process by our highly experienced jury’s, who will go through an evaluation process and select only high-quality films.

The festival will provide up to 36 nominees in each category along with a winner per category. All nominees and winners receive laurels, certificates, trophies and the opportunity to have their films added to the Coimbatore International Film Festival website for global promotion and viewing as well as attending our live event.
