Paris Lift-Off Film Festival

About Us

Nearly every major distributor from short film to features within mainland Europe have their head offices in Paris. Along with that, and the fact that French indie cinema is producing some of the best work in the world, Lift-Off Global Network feels that the time is right to have a large, and permanent showcase in Paris. For our filmmakers, it is vital that their work gets screened within some of the most famous, and indie-cinema important metropolitan cities in the world.
Not only is our festival a global showcase for filmmakers looking to take that next step, we provide a free service where we take your work to the major film markets AFM, Cannes, Berlin...etc -- All with the aim of getting your work acquired by distributors.

We have found the French and European markets the most accessible for short film, and experimental feature-length arthouse/independent work. Which is why a Lift-Off screening in Paris within our season is a total must for any filmmaker looking to develop their brand. Providing more opportunity for our filmmakers is our primary aim and with a country obsessed with cinema, France needs to be a location all filmmakers must crack if they wish their work to transcend an international audience and the global market.

Paris Lift-Off Film Festival is a week long celebration at the end of October where true independent talent and fresh voices are showcased with the opportunities to have their work gain global exposure. We are not a red carpet celebrity driven event - this is a film festival designed to find pure filmmaking talent aside from the gloss, putting talent before technology and showcasing only the best in true independent cinema.
