Impress the audience with your film
Art Experimental Screenings Film Festival Fresh Stream is a film festival dedicated to art and experimental films.
We hold the festival live in Tbilisi, Georgia in popular venues (cinemas, conference halls, parks, etc.) to get closer to the audience.
Tbilisi is the capital of Georgia, one of the crossroads between Europe and Asia. So that Tbilisi is a very multicultural city. Georgia has an extremely generous visa-free policy that allows more than 95 nationalities to enter the country without a visa and stay for up to one year. That’s why Tbilisi has a large expat community from all over the World.
It’s in Tbilisi your film gets a really multinational, expressive, warmest, sincere, and close audience.
During the event, each film receives the audience evaluation by 6 criteria: script, directing, acting, camerawork, music, and impressiveness. Filmmakers receive detailed results personally after the event. Based on those results the best film receives the Audience Award.
A professional jury panel that includes award-winning filmmakers, producers, as well as representatives of distributors, buyers, and online streaming services, also reviews selected works and gives their awards.
We receive submissions from more than 150 countries so we reach a loyal audience from those countries. That’s why if we have permission from the filmmaker, we broadcast the film on a special channel on our website. In this way, we bring the film to an audience from all over the world.
Movies are being screened on a special channel on our website without a download option during the festival days and with the permission of the copyright holder only.
Since our festival is a part of a distributing project, each film is being analyzed for a possible strategy for further development. If the filmmaker has an interest in this, the team will provide a plan after the festival.
Art Experimental Screenings Film Festival Fresh Stream is inviting you to submit your film.
Full attention to your film. Focused audience. We classify all the films into genre sections so the viewers could focus their attention and limited time on the films they engaged most.
Test your movie. Audience evaluation. This is such a huge advantage to filmmakers. Viewers evaluate all the screened films in 6 main categories: story (script), directing, acting, camerawork, impressiveness, and music. So you test your film against an audience of viewers.
Awards and Certificates. Audience choice and the Professional Jury panel awards. Filmmakers receive official certificates and laurels, and the winners receive award signs and trophies (the festival winner).
Interaction with the audience. You can introduce your film both: personally and online. If you can attend the event we give you the time to communicate with the audience to introduce your film and to have a Q&A session. Besides, you can interact with the audience via online access or just send the introduction video. So you get the opportunity to popularize yourself, your film, your crew, and your cast.
Market and Promote your film. Our film festival collaborates with theatrical distributors, TV and cable channels, and online buyers. Your film receives the opportunity to be presented to them at the festival.
Screenings in local venues that are nearest to the audience. Out-of-format Cinema network. We screen films at local venues such as cinemas, screening halls, conference halls, parks, etc to be as close as possible to the audience. We create the cinema network for out-of-format independent films to distribute them regularly with payments to the creators.
Social media promotion tools. We provide the opportunity to promote your film on social media. First, we promote your film as a part of the event program on the festival and project social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter). Second, our festival rewards the Fan award that’s determined by voting on social media. So you get the great opportunity to accumulate your fans and promote your film information.
