The origins of The European Independent Film Channel can be traced back to The European Independent Film Festival and to the desire of its public to re-watch the films they enjoyed during the festival.

At the beginning the channel was screening only films that participated in the festival but the idea quickly expanded beyond the limits of ÉCU, welcoming every independent filmmaker to submit his film for consideration. The channel has a vast variety of films covering seven different categories (pretty much like the festival): short films, documentaries, student films, feature films, experimental films, music videos and animation films. The collection is completed by interviews with the filmmakers and with more original content.

Watch films in their categories below:














“We invite indie-lovers from across the world to join us on this thrilling occasion to help make known how incredible independent cinema can really be”, stated Scott Hillier, president of ÉCU, at the official worldwide launching of EuroIFC in May 2013 in Paris.
