International Independent Permanent Memories Festival (IIPMF) will create opportunities for new and emerging work in the cinematic arts because its JURY is comprised of working professionals & specialists of each field in the industry, and winners will get access to a concrete chance to find a worldwide distribution. The IIPM was conceived by Michael Segal (italian actor and producer), who fell in love with cinema as a child and wanted to help independents to have a chance to be noticed.
IIPMF is distinguished by its jurors, all active professionals in the film, television & web industries. Represented experience ranges from low budget independent projects to high budget Hollywood productions & blockbusters, from aspiring talent to Academy Awards winners.
