The Film Verdict and The MILC Platform proudly present the ALPHA FILM FESTIVAL (AFF), a ground-breaking film festival of the future. Making its virtual bow next March, ALPHA FILM FESTIVAL is the first film festival exclusively hosted on The MILC Platform, a Web3 Metaverse and social community platform. The festival will take place across five days, 3rd-7th March 2023.

The inaugural edition of AFF is dedicated to bringing you cutting edge in short film content from around the world, selected by the festival’s artistic director Ben Nicholson, the renowned critic for The Film Verdict.

AFF’s theme in 2023 is “The Future” and the central film program will feature a selection of the best recent shorts on that theme. Alongside those films will be several curated screenings that will embrace topics such as visions of the future and artificial intelligence, as well as explore the potential crossover between filmmaking and gaming. The festival will offer live events and panel discussions with filmmakers and industry leaders shaping the film industry’s future.

Ben Nicholson, artistic director of AFF says:

“We’re incredibly excited to be crafting a program of screenings and events that will really engage, in a variety of ways, with future potential, whether that is in the subjects that the films deal with, the techniques they’re using, or the next steps the industry is taking into bold new areas.”

Audiences will have the chance to participate in the festival, by voting for their favorite short film from the main program. The winning film will be the proud recipient of the AFF Audience Award at the closing ceremony.

“The Film Verdict and The MILC Platform are passionate about bringing the Metaverse closer to the traditional content companies as an alternative media platform and The Alpha Film Festival takes us one step closer”, said Eric Mika and Hendrik Hey in a joint statement.
