TIFA has been dedicated to showcasing and supporting independent filmmakers and writers worldwide since 2010. TIFA’s mission is based on three main values: Accessibility, Diversity and Equality. For that reason, TIFA screens and awards films and screenplays from every country, in all genres, and in a range of production budgets. TIFA accepts feature films in four subcategories, but also highlights categories that are often overlooked such as experimental films, web series, animations, music videos and children’s films.
