Paris Lift-Off Film Festival

Nearly every major distributor from short film to features within mainland Europe have their head offices in Paris. Furthermore, 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.

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.

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, EFM etc... All with the aim of getting your work acquired by distributors.
