A celebration of the best cinema with USD 6000 cash prizes per year in awards.
All the main category winners will compete for the Best Short of the Season (quarterly special award) and will receive a cash prize of USD 1500.

In our opening year we were amazed by films from outstanding directors and breathtaking casts including : Kevin Bacon, Golden Globe winner Kyra Sedgwick, Pauline Chalamet, Ricardo Darín, Oscar nominees Jude Law, Brenda Blethyn and so many more. We have also enjoyed the new visions of directors like Sylvain Begert, Constance Tsang, Katrine Brocks, Phyllis Tam.

All main category award winning films will be screened in our live Event. All tickets for this live screening will be complimentary for filmmakers and for the audience. Furthermore, the films from the Official Selection will be quarterly screened in our Virtual Events and will compete for the quarterly Cash Prizes.

We realize how important it is to be recognized for your talent. Therefore, our professional screeners will privately review your film and the highest scored ones will become part of the Official Selection.

Then, our international jury will award the best projects of each season. All of them will receive the official laurel and an achievement certificate.

Winner announcements will be released through our social media to help promote your film.

Our Festival is a great opportunity for a new generation of film directors who will receive our team support during the whole process.
