About Cardiff Mini Film Festival 2018

Cardiff Mini Film Festival began back in 2012, and was born of the simply belief that you don't need tons of money and experience to make excellent films. Creative, inspirational and skilled films can be made on very little budget, with proper hard work and dedication being just as important as anything else. Anybody can enter a film into the Cardiff Mini Film Festival, whether a student, low budget production company or you even make films at home – get stuck in! During the festival, the team take over an incredible range of venues, ranging from bars to empty shops, deserted spaces to antiques markets – if it's an unusual, quirky venue then you can guarantee that there'll be a film screening there!
