BEST ACTOR AWARD: All the world’s a Stage

The Best Actor Award is an International Bi-Monthly IMDb Qualifying Competition with Annual Screening Event, celebrating Actors from all over the world. Our Mission is to recognize talent and passion and to award the Best Performances in Acting of independent cinema. Only the Best Films of a whole year will be selected by the Jury for the Annual Screening Event in the beautiful Saint-Vincent, Italy.

During the Bi-Monthly Competition, our Jury will only award the Best Actors through private screenings. We may award Diamond, Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze, depending on the judgment of the performance. All the Winners of the Bi-Monthly Competition will receive a Winner Laurel, our Official Certificate (digital format) ready for printing, will be listed on our web site and may order our Trophy. There may be Honorable Mentions to those Actors who haven’t won their category, but whose skills deserve to be celebrated. Moreover, we award the very Special “Outstanding Performance” that will receive an Exclusive Interview on our website. All the Award Winners may upload their credits on IMDb. Only the Best Films of a whole year will be selected by the Jury for the Annual Screening Event, that will take place in the beautiful Saint-Vincent, Italy, in February 2020.
