I could not stop talking because now I had started my story, it wanted to be finished. We cannot choose where to start and stop. Our stories are the tellers of us.

Phoenix  Rising International Film Festival is a new festival founded by Victor De Almeida and Ewa Habdas. The festival was created by filmmakers, for filmmakers out of the love of filmmaking. 


Our goal is to create a global community for independent filmmakers to showcase their films and further develop partnerships within the industry.  

Once a year, we aim to put together a two-day film extravaganza with an awards ceremony at the end to celebrate that year's best films.
