Eternal International Film Festival
Bringing Eternity to Independent Cinema
Welcome to Eternal International Film Festival. We are happy to welcome you and be in the same boat with independent filmmakers from all over the world. We have been working towards this for many years, making films ourselves, diving into the industry and finally we are here.

During our work, we have come across the fact that there are not so many festivals in the world who are able to appreciate independent cinema. Novice filmmakers or those who do not want to be dependent on someone else's funds, often cut off the road at the very beginning of the journey. And we are called to fix it.

Our task is not to evaluate technical tricks, behind which very often there is only money, and looking at these frames, we don't see anything else besides money. We are here to search for authors, real authors whose vision is applied in art. People engaged in the search, the constant search for feelings, reality, the passage of time. This is what cinema is for us and if we get these feelings, if we are able to feel.. that means your work has a place to be awarded.
