The Festival believes that films can be made on very little or no budget, just pure hard work and dedication from the people involved. With this in mind we bring you a festival where money is not the key to a great film, if you are a student, low budget production company or are someone who makes films at home, then this festival is for you.

Providing a young, fresh and exciting perspective to today’s world of cinema, we seek to showcase and honor innovative and exciting voices in the UK and international film communities. With nine categories, our goal is to recognize a large and diverse selection of films from all genres and from all over the world. No longer will your entry be obliterated by a big budget production company, if you have the skills to tell a story then you could be the winner of LOCIFF Festival.
