SUBMISSIONS FOR SIFA 4 NOW OPEN!!
As with all judging, the process can be tough and carried on personal taste, though with our band of judges that taste is very varied and fair! After some serious watching and judging, we eventually decide on our overall winners and runner-ups. Please see below for past SIFA Results...
Congratulations to all our winners of the Sandbar International Film Festival... We had a great time watching all submissions and a hard time judging some amazing work. To the right is a full list of the winning films along with the runner-up titles.
Please REMEMBER, the SIFA is an online based, judges only festival so you do not need to attend anything to support your film - saving you some cost also.
Please feel free to send us your posters for the winning films, and we can spruce up the website with them in the coming weeks.
Once again, congratulaions and thank you for supporting the SIFA and the independent film industry!
