The Alternative Film Festival is a quarterly event that is committed to bringing filmmakers of all levels - even beginners - a chance at taking home a festival award. We are an IMDb eligible festival meaning filmmakers will be able to post their nominations and wins on their IMDb profiles.

We are the ALTERNATIVE FILM FESTIVAL - we are not your typical film awards! Our quarterly event is different - it is an awards event where we will be announcing the Winners of each of the many categories within Feature Films, Short Films and Super Short Films. Filmmakers around the world can join us for the awards announcements via Facebook Live! Make sure you follow us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/AltFilmFest to watch.

WE NOW SCREEN THE 8 BEST FILM FINALISTS FOR EACH QUARTER AT OUR QUARTERLY EVENT, BEGINING WITH THE FALL 2019 EDITION. All other Semi-Finalists (in many different categories) are in the running to win our IMDb-eligible awards.

    I'm honor the ALTFF recognized and awarded my short Sci-Fi video. The value of this festival can not be beat. I wish I could figure out how to get this award on IMDB as the organizers boosted to do so when they sent winner announcements.
