Statement of our festival directors
The Tyrolean Independent Filmfestival is already an important film festival for independent filmmakers. It's a truly independent film festival with a "Sundance character" in the heart of the European Alps, the alpine-urban city of Innsbruck, Austria. The TyIFF was founded to celebrate entertaning films – short, long, animated, fiction and documentary. We want to introduce a unique and diversified spectrum of international movies to our audience.
That's why we're looking for high-quality movies between art house and hollywood block busters, entertaining movies that have the potential to enlighten international audiences and present inspired entertainment for all ages.
It’s not the budget that matters for us, it’s the creativity of the filmmakers, actors, writers, editors, cinematographers. It’s not about who you know in the industry, it’s about talent. Our mandate is to present the most outstanding films produced in every part of the world and to support local filmmakers to reach international audiences.
The Tyrolean Independent Film Festival in and around Innsbruck, Tyrol is organized and executed by experienced professionals. The goal of the Tyrolean Independent Film Festival is to bring exposure to Independent Filmmakers, allowing screenings for the public, industry professionals, and press. Every other year we're inviting industry professionals, financers and sponsors, to give the filmmakers a chance for networking and talking to friends.
Great movies in a modern alpine city, that's the Tyrolean Independent Film Festival.
All Movies are watched, decisions are made because of the talent we see, not because of the budget or the filmmakers industry-contacts.
We love movies, respect filmmakers, and we give good movies and talented filmmakers a chance to present themselves to the public.
