The Free Spirit Film Festival is probably the smallest film festival in the world. Small also describes where the Festival is held, in the beautiful Himalayan village of McLeod Ganj. However, both the festival and the village are sweet.

You will be proud to be able to screen your film here to an array of audience from all around the world.

As a testimony to the success of the festival, and due to our impressive visibility, we continue to get more and more film submissions from all over the world.

Be a part of this beautiful event and submit your film between May to July, or attend the festival from 27 to 31 October 2018. Sponsorship enquiries are also welcome.

Looking forward to a great film year yet again.
