About the event

Celebrating experimental, unconvential and independent films we launched our VoD Platform 2018 and the same year initiated the annual Film Festival with the same mission!

For our 2nd edition we will focus our program on Experimental Films of a WIDE variety, as you can see in the categories below.

We welcome all forms of films made by film makers who go with their own style and stories - may they be macabre, unsympathetic, quiet, violent, dreamy or anything else.

We pay for accomodation for all selected films to encourage and support their travel to the Berlin for the Festival. The event aims to create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere where guests feel welcomed and at home - networking, mingling and simply having a good time. Participating at the festival should be a valuable experience, not just another screening in an unknown place.

Below follows a group of genres which is what we look for when putting our program together. Obviously all these genres can be both documentary and fiction, and a mix of any combination possible, which we naturally welcome.

*Sagas & Myths 
*Poetic / Essay / Fictional Nature & Wildlife 
*Comedy & Drama 
*Post-Apocalyptic & Dystopic 
*Erotic & Sexual adventures and essays 
*Sci-fi's and Fantasy 
*Monster & Horror

Regardless of genre our programming core is the own style and storytelling. Roars in anger and whispers in pain, sexual and violent urges joyfull or painfull, esoteric mysticism or a straight narrative - all and everything in between is welcome.

All films are invited to our VoD Platform Illambra. We launched 2018 building completely from scratch and use a straight forward 50/50 model for revenue. For us it's first and foremost about true independent films finding a home online where they can be hosted and presented together in a qualitative manner. We're looking to build a solid library over time, presenting authors rather than titles, and grow the user base organically.
