#CW - Cinema of the World is a quarterly film event that runs with and for various institutions and societies.

BIG NEWS: This is the best Season to submit your film to Cinema of the World as next year CW will be hosting a larger-than-life film festival where winning films of all previous seasons will not only be given the entry but a definite selection for the competitive round as well. Along with that, all films will be given free entry at the CW Studio platform wherein they will be showcased among millions of audience.

#Season 8-10 will be an online event.
#Season 8 opens for public on April 1st, 2021.

#CW is the first festival that is specifically created to help independent filmmakers and groups to raise awareness about the kind of films made in the world.

#Filmmakers competing in CW festival are not bound to any condition which requires them not to show their films anywhere else. Rather awarded films will be given priority over others as it being the purpose of our festival to educate through the best (which again is subjective). Still, all decisions will be taken by the jury and they will decide which films to grant submission for the festival.

*Here you have the chance to become a mentor to many.
*Submit your film to #CW and become one.

Note:
1. It is the sole right of the festival to select and reject the film they want and the Jury's decision remains confidential always.
2. For any queries, please contact the spokesperson of the festival. Mail is what we personally prefer and quick at.
3. Films on the elderly, children, and women will be awarded separately.

All selected entries receive Official Selection Laurels. You can also create your personalized Laurels on FilmFreeway.
Winners receive Official CWIFF Certificates. Make sure you ask for them and if there's a delay you see, push the authorities.

    From Christopher R. Owens, President, CESO Enterprises, Inc. crowens@cesony.com: On behalf of CESO ENTERPRISES, INC., Alyssa Dann, Chris Oledude, and all of our production participants, I would like to compliment the organizers and operators of the Cinema of the World International Film Festival.
    When we created our first music video (which was long enough to be a short film), we knew nothing about film festivals. With the help of FilmFreeway, we started researching. The categories were good. Everyone who contacted us on behalf of this festival was helpful. The submissions looked excellent.
    It was indeed exciting to discover this new world and to be so warmly welcomed by the inhabitants! To have GEORGE FLOYD: SAY THEIR NAMES selected for inclusion was an honor in and of itself. So, to be awarded AWARD OF MERIT was thrilling and beyond what we expected!
    We were happy to “get the word out” and continue motivating people worldwide to consider the injustices embedded within our nation’s criminal justice system. After all, situations where a powerful segment of the population uses its law enforcement apparatus to abuse and oppress other segments of the population are recognizable in and common to many societies.
    We recommend submitting your work and we certainly intend to participate again in the future. Peace and stay safe!
