Mission / description One of the most prestigious and recognized film festivals in the Southern hemisphere & possibly one of Australia's largest "online" multicultural event. Our festival endeavors to connect diverse cultural backgrounds from every corner of the world, being a unique and only festival to accept submissions while running simultaneously on every continent! Colortape International Film Festival is a platform for international and local professionals and developing animators/filmmakers/script writers/digital content creators/musicians in need to showcase their creative skills while helping them better their skill or expand their careers. Colortape International Film Festival is a festival created by industry professionals to support filmmakers world wide. We plan a televised Red Carpet premier in the future but we need your support. Planning to run it in most capital cities throughout every state of Australia, Asia, Africa, South & North America, Europe, Middle East. We pride ourselves because our global festival which accepts submissions and runs simultaneously in many countries at the same time, offers the wider audiences the opportunity to experience this unique source of entertainment that take place simultaneously on a global scale, involving many countries and people from various backgrounds. Unique in the world! Whilst this could be an online event only until we can grow our festival to premier in various world wide locations indoor and/or outdoor. While we are trying to expand the competition there will be many obstacles hampering our efforts. A live broadcasting service will be negotiated in the future with major networks around the globe to showcase most of the submitted works.

The aim of the competition is to bring exposure to great animators, filmmakers and films, scripts, ideas & topics, graphics designers, creative minds and digital content and creators that might otherwise not break in the industry or through a more traditional festival process.

Also the aim is to merge the world of amateur and professional filmmakers, producers & directors, creators of TV commercials, promo and video clip makers to student filmmakers, media, marketing, graphics design, animation, film, IT and other related fields while allowing them to enter, showcase and possibly forge a partnership or relation with others in the industry in a unique way with the help of Colortape International Film Festival. At the same time hoping to impress the world audience, fellow competitors, investors, sponsors and possibly future employers.

How will this work in your favor? As we previously mentioned the submitted works will be viewed and judged by industry professionals, in some instances from a large number of countries, many who are/were partners or affiliates through association within the film industry, people that hail from either a marketing background, international advertising agencies, or former or current sponsors, joint-venture partners in other projects with the founders of the film festival.

These professionals and invited guests will get direct access to your submitted work, thus of: animations/musicals/films/promos/vidlets/scripts and together with the feedback and recommendations from the panel of judges will help us all to make a fair and transparent, best choice, among them the right selection of winners, runner ups and anyone else who deserves recognition. Any special recognition. From cast & crew.

We believe that EVERYONE submitting or making something deserves to be rewarded. Everyone. Bearing in mind that due to the fact that the economical downturn in recent years, the floods of 2011 that damaged most of our un-insured projecting equipment, and due to ever expansion and branching out in many countries, we have limited resources, this coming year, and we might be unable to reward EVERY single submission. Although we would like to. Most assured that we can still guarantee that everyone who submits a film or work (eg: script, musical score, graphic design etc) will get an internationally recognized certificate and we will endeavor to recommend you for IMDb credits or other awards.
