IndieFlicks, the successful monthly film festival established in 2015, is coming back to Liverpool!

Previously being held at the Liverpool Small Cinema and FACT, the popular film festival is returning at The Vines pub – bringing its unique blend of contemporary independent cinema from across the world with it.

The festival was founded by Arron Lee White and John Pank, two Manchester-based filmmakers who wanted to create a networking platform which could also inspire creativity from those who attended.

“Every aspect of the filmmaking process is represented at our events” said John, “on the cinematic side – the directors, screenwriters, and producers – as well as the people whose skills are integral to a quality production – actors, musicians, designers. Everyone”.

Previous attendees have been impressed both by the range of artistic disciplines and diversity of films seen at events. “Not only is IndieFlicks a brilliant opportunity to network” said Martyn Ellis, a sound engineer, when he attended one of the Manchester screenings, “it offers insight into short filmmaking approaches worldwide”.

Every month, the judges receive hundreds of submissions from shorts currently on the festival circuit. “They only pick the best films for their screenings” said Chris Cronin, director, “so it’s not only a great festival to enter, but a great film night to attend”.

Over the time it has been running, IndieFlicks has screened dozens of highly acclaimed films including Dark Room, which stars well-known comedy star David Mitchell, and Lapsus, renowned as the most awarded French short film ever.

“Our aim is to spread our monthly programme to cities nationwide” adds John, “and build a strong platform for creatives to meet and spread their work. Tickets always sell quick, so we must be doing something right”.

The event will be held at The Vines, 81 Lime Street. Doors open at 7.30pm on 7th August for an 8.00pm start. Tickets cost £1.64 and are available at
