Take Control of Your Independent Film Career

THE POWER OF THE NETWORK

We set out from the very beginning to build a community within the film industry that could help each person within launch their own career. Artists need support and nurturing, and can often grind to a halt despite having an abundance of talent.

With the Network comes knowledge and power. Connecting with filmmakers around the globe and learning from each other. It is often said 'it is not what you know, but who'. The Network turns this into your strength.

I had such an amazing experience. The lift off team are very special, so supportive and genuinely awesome people. I would highly recommend this festival to any first time filmmaker!!”

Chris Overton – Season Award and Academy Award Winner

…I can honestly say Lift-Off is one of the most welcoming, supportive and filmmaker friendly festivals I have had the pleasure of being part of. They have a strong focus on film marketing and the winners of each festival are taken on a worldwide tour of their other festivals… No other festival offers that kind of global platform...”

Tristan Shepherd – Lift-Off Season Award Winner & Network Judge

A great group of people work so hard to make Lift-Off such an amazing film network for filmmakers. They really do care.

Adam Losurdo – Lift-Off ‘Globally Screened’ Filmmaker

We have never felt more fortunate than to be an official selection of the Lift-Off Film Festival. The atmosphere at a Lift-Off event feels like you have been transported back to the days when Sundance was actually all about independent artists and filmmaking.

Brahm Taylor – Lift-Off ‘Globally Screened’ Filmmaker

“…We’ve already had other festival selections (outside the Lift Off Network) as a result of the attention the LA Lift Off screening generated…The screening facilities were fantastic, rarely has our film looked so good on the big screen.”

Shelia Marshall – Lift-Off Season Award Winner

Lift -Off is an exciting and lovely company who are really there to help up and coming filmmakers…

A film is – or should be – more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what’s behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later.
