Born in 2012, The Cardiff Mini Film Festival believes that films can be made on very little or no budget, just pure hard work and dedication from the people involved. With this in mind we bring you a festival where money is not the key to a great film, if you are a student, low budget production company or are someone who makes films at home, then this festival is for you. No longer will your entry be obliterated by a big budget production company, if you have the skills to tell a story then you could be the winner of the next Cardiff Mini Film Festival.

All kinds of people come to our festival, from actors to musicians, as well as special guests from within the industry which in the past have included Boyd Clack (Twin Town, Satellite City, High Hopes), Kirsten Jones (Satellite City, High Hopes), Philip John (Being Human, Downton Abbey), Kevin Allen (Twin Town), Ryan Eddleston (Prevenge), S4C, Ffilm Cymru Wales, Creative Skillset, Cult Cymru and many more people to meet to discuss your career in the industry. 

We also screen many special under distributed films for those film lovers out there, in underused spaces such as bars and empty shops.We pride ourselves on being a bit different and you can expect to be watching films in coffee shop vaults, an antiques market, funky bars and other fantastic unusual venues we can get our hands on.

This is a festival for those that like to mingle with a drink throughout the day whilst enjoying the best up and coming short films.
