We are glad to welcome you to our festival! Butterfly International Film Festival is created for independent filmmakers who are both at the beginning of the journey, and already firmly afloat.
Our main goal is to help you discover your talent! For the public to recognize the film, you need an authoritative opinion of someone, we have assembled our jury committee so that they become the same authorities for the rest of society. But this does not mean at all that we are at least in some kind of filmmaking framework.
If your work suggests thoughts beyond the author's idea, this film can be considered an art. If your film has a place for rhythm, hidden and revealed, duality, paradoxicity, exclusivity, feelings, tension or relief - we are glad to welcome you, and be sure we will appreciate it.
Annual Event will be held in 2023 for 3 Days
