What is FilmGate?

it all began...

In late 2012 FilmGate started as a startup addressing the transcendence of cinema & new technology. FilmGate is the leading non profit organization that supports independent & industry level film studios. We offer educational programs, creative excursions, collaborative sessions and events to showcase cinematic works.
In 2013 the Knights Foundation named FilmGate Miami winners of the Knights Arts Challenge and that made way to the FilmGate Interactive Media Festival, the first Interactive Media Festival in the South East region of the US. Every February FilmGate brings to South Florida the top leading makers in technology and storytelling. If you are a digital media creative, we have events you would absolutely enjoy & love.
