Best Indie Film Award is one of the online film festivals of the Best Film Awards - IMDb Qualifing Film Festival. Our film festival is a prestigious festival for filmmakers around the world, based in one of the most beautiful cities in the world – London.

FilmFreeway has ranked our festival, the Best Indie Film Awards, among the TOP 70 BEST REVIEWED film festivals in United Kingdom.

Last year, we honored the directors who were shortlisted for Oscar and BAFTA nominations. The festival is based on a professional approach. In the evaluation, we focus on the technical design of the film, the idea of ​​the film, dramatic gradation, the tone of the film, the script, the conflict, the reality of the action, the acting performances and we attention to the details on which your film is composed.

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 project.

Our festival can have a greater reach and be more effective for filmmakers than a live screening festival, because nowadays everyone in the world can watch online screenings, not just from one city.

Promoting independent film means finding talent and budding filmmakers looking for a job in the film market.
