The I'VE SEEN FILMS International Film Festival was founded in 2007 by Rutger Hauer and the goal is to promote, both on a world-wide basis, and through the internet streaming medium, the works of filmmakers desiring powerful exposure and visibility to their films.
The I'VE SEEN FILMS Festival stands out among other film festivals because the film authors can have their works screened in digital high definition. This professional approach allows a superlative high-quality projection which, during the past editions, gathered enthusiastic praises from the audience and film authors alike.
I'VE SEEN FILMS provides a unique platform for up-and-coming filmmakers to demonstrate their artistic capabilities and for the public to recognize their talent. A prestigious Jury of internationally-known film experts enhances the complexity and uniqueness of this Festival.
In an agreement between I'VE SEEN FILMS and Microcinema Digital Network, the competing films are aired via satellite in the 170 theaters of this digital network.
Furthermore, the I'VE SEEN FILMS Internet Contest offers film authors additional exposure to their works, by the assignment of Internet Audience and Internet Jury awards. The 2010 edition totaled 278 online competing works (from 58 countries), that received a staggering number of more than 2,000,000 views.
For the competing film authors, in the true I'VE SEEN FILMS tradition, the Award Evening will evolve into an unforgettable moment that makes them the real protagonists of the Festival.
