How this

FESTIVAL

works: rules and prizes

HERE YOU WILL FIND THE RULES. IN THE END THERE ARE THE FAQ. READ WITH ATTENCTION BEFORE TO SEND AN EMAIL TO US. WE RECEIVE A LOT OF EMAILS EVERY DAY AND OUR STAFF WILL ANSWERS ONLY TO THE E-MAILS WITHOUT ANSWER IN THE FAQ.

NOTE: you can choose one monthly category like "best feature film" or "best short" or directly the annual category "ANNUAL FESTIVAL" and partecipate to the annual festival directly. All the winners as best of the month will partecipate to the annual festival.

 

The selected movies as well as the winners will receive a golden laurel wreath, which can be used in advertising material.

As a part of this festival occurs every month, there are more chances to hang the golden laurel on your favourite movies!

 

Furthermore, every month we select the movies which can run for secondary awards: only one movie will be awarded as “best movie”, whereas the others will be able to win in subcategories – that is, if they deserve it.

 

At the end of the year, all the movies that had won a category will take part to the annual event and could be crowned best movie of the year and win the prestigious trophy!

 

We prefer receiving also the movie trailer, so that we can share it on our website together with the poster, but that is not a participation requirement.

 

The monthly winners will automatically enter the annual competition, free of charge.

 

How it works

 

1) Every month there is a selection of the movies that will take part to the annual event. Along with the main categories (such as feature film, short film, documentary…) there will be subcategories; it is required to be entered in one of the main categories to be able to win one of the subcategories.

 

2) At the end of the month we will chose the winners for each category and the general winner.


 

3) In December we will open the annual contest to all the movies, which will be enlisted as well as the monthly winners. The annual prizes for each category will be awarded.

4) Only one movie will be awarded Best Movie of the year and will feature the home page of our website for 12 months.

 

Awards & Prizes

 

1. Every month: we give the prize “Best of the month”

2. Every month: we award in different genres and categories

3. Annual festival: we award prize like “best of the year” and prizes for each category (of the year). The annual winners can receive trophy and certificate.

4) You can partecipate to the monthly edition or directly to the annual. If you win the monthly you will partecipate to the annual in the same category you have won.

 

Eligibility for Annual Awards: the monthly winners are finalist and partecipate to the annual contest.

 

ATTENTION:

All submissions in personal categories (like “best actor” or “best director”) need the name of the person you are registering to the category. You can send us with the cover letter. The name must match with the real person who cover the role. The festival committee can remove the movie from the competition.

 

The number of awards given every month varies on the basis of the submission we received. We give one trophy for free every month (to the "Best of the month").

In the annual event in London we award with our trophy the main categories.

Winning films are announced on our website and our social media page. Each winner will receive email with the certificate.
