Changing Face International Film Festival is an online platform for filmmakers to show and promote their short films.

CFIFF aims to encourage diverse content from diverse creators. We are excited to invite you to take part in our second year and hope you'll continue to be involved for many years to come.

CFIFF runs film and screenplay competitions monthly. The winners of the monthly competitions will automatically be entered into the year long competition where overall winners will be selected.

Each category will have official selections, finalists, and a winner.

Offical Selections, Finalists and Winners will be listed on our website and receive appropriate laurels. Winning films will also have their film's trailer promoted on our website and social media. (If you don't want us to promote your trailer you can opt out.) Winning films will also receive a review on our website.

Winners of the Best Screenplay (Short), Best Screenwriter, and a wild card winner will receive an InkTip Script Listing to promote themselves and their scripts to InkTip’s entire network of producers, managers, and agents.

Companies who are InkTip members include: ABC, Anonymous Content, APA, CBS Films, HBO Films, ICM, Paradigm, Paramount Pictures, Hallmark Channel, FX, Universal, WME, Echo Lake, Zero Gravity, Bad Robot, 20th Century Fox, and many more.

Producers have made more than 315 films from scripts and writers found through InkTip.
