Best Cinematography Award is one of the monthly film festivals of the Best Film Awards - IMDb Qualifing Film Festival, organized by the GOLDEN ART. Our film festival is a prestigious monthly festival with live screening once a month and an annual film festival for filmmakers around the world, based in one of the most beautiful cities in the world – London, 29th December 2021.

Last year, we awarded films and screenplays in the Best Director Award and Best Script Award. We honored the directors who were shortlisted for Oscar and BAFTA nominations.

We ourselves are filmmakers, producers and entrepreneurs. We know how difficult it is to show the world that someone appreciates your work. That's why we came up with a unique project in which we involved several jurors from around the world and created a new opportunity to show your film to the world.

Our mission is to recognize talent and passion and to award the best film DOPs. Our team works around the clock. Each films we seen within 72 hours! Best Cinematography Award is looking for the best DOP in short and feature film!

The festival is based on a professional approach. We evaluate the technical design, sharpness, artistic intent, colors, tone of the film, the means of expression of the shots.

The main prize of the Best Film Awards is $ 5,000.

The best films from each month will be screened. Every month we will produce a small brochure. In this brochure you will find specific monthly screened films. You can also find them on our website in the BEST FILM AWARDS section in the Monthly Screenings section.
