It is with great pleasure that we invite you to participate in the upcoming Phare International Film Festival in Mauritius.

Learning from our experience and applying our knowledge, we aim to empower local and regional film-makers. Our festival is viewable live via social media channels and screened at one of the Island’s local cinemas.

Our film festival brings local and international film-makers together in Mauritius to share culture, ideas, knowledge, experience, and, more importantly, each other’s creations.

We have created categories for local film-makers, including a special one for young film-makers aged under 25. When submitting your films, they will be assessed and passed forward to the independent judging phase.

Phare International Film Festival will include live screening sessions of selected nominees from local and international entries at MCine Trianon between 20th and 22nd December.

Our festival will close on 23rd December with a grande finale at RM Garden, Trianon. The event will be an extravaganza. Beginning with an exclusive gala dinner prepared by an award-winning local chef, an evening of live entertainment, guest speakers and, of course, our awards ceremony.

Entrants can submit their films from the 3rd of April 2022.

 Feel free to reach out if you require any further information.

The deadline for all submissions is 27th November 2022 – No exceptions.
