FAME'US is a quarterly online Film Festival to bring the best animation and short films from around the globe. We are dedicated to presenting a variety of works of emerging talents with exceptional cinematic creativity to film lovers and the film community in Hollywood.

We know how hard making a film is, and exactly how challenging it is to get your name out there. We will award the Platinum, Silver, and Bronze awards and we are going to publicize some of our award winners and nominees on our online film platform and magazines for further exposure of your accomplishments.

We wish hidden artists from all over the world to express themselves by creating great films that realize their unique vision and make an audience from all corners of the universe sit up and take notice.
