Hercules Independent
Film Festival

About us

We are Hercules Independent Film Festival.

Hercules is the mythological founder of the city of Seville, which hosts our Film Festival. According to myth, he sailed through the Strait of Gibraltar to the Atlantic, and founded trading posts at the current sites of Cádiz and of Seville. Seville is approximately 2,200 years old. The passage of the various civilizations instrumental in its growth has left the city with a distinct personality, and a large and well-preserved historical centre.


We value our culture, strive to enrich it and consider it our mission to attracting and promote new productions, independent directors and artists from around the world. Fiction, animation, documentary and experimental films of any genre and subject are welcome!

We strong advocate for experience exchange, and encourages cultural diversity and understanding between nations.

We are also including and actively supporting not only the finest examples of classic moviemaking, but works that are experimental, breaking ground in new non-narrative forms and crossing over into the video arts. All films will be reviewed as they are submitted, and the best in each category will be chosen to screen at the festival. Semi-finalist films will not be screened but will receive our festival laurels. A jury of industry professionals will then view the finalists and choose the winning selections.

Screenings are held at the Avenida 5 Cines, Sevilla. Looking forward to meeting you here.
