2021 submissions now open.

We appreciate it’s hard to imagine what the future will bring. In the absence of any certainties, KIFF are opening their submissions in the honest hope that by next October, it will be safe to nestle into the darkness to enjoy a film together. If KIFF cannot open its doors, we will build on last year’s online Festival success and put our time into making sure the world knows your film is online. 

What is KIFF looking for?

Here at KIFF, we admire gutsy, original film-making. We look for brave talent that puts itself out there so that we, the audience, are pulled in. It’s this exciting dynamic we try to nurture with our KIFF selections. We are mostly a short film festival but do show a choice number of features, including documentaries.
