Flicks Daily brings you the very best in Entertainment News, all day, every day and now it’s proud to bring to you the Flicks Film Festival all year, every month.
Why wait a full year to know if your entry is a winner?
The Flicks Film Festival wants to bring you that news as soon as possible and that is why we have created the Flicks Film Festival to be a monthly competition with all winners being automatically entered into our annual event.
Each month our judges will select the people and projects that make the best impact on them as their go through every entry. There will be awards in several ‘Main Categories’, and every submission can add numerous ‘Additional Categories' to showcase each and every department and thus increasing the probability of coming out a category winner.
Each and every Monthly Award Winner will receive our Official Certificate (digital format) ready for printing, be listed on our web site, promoted via our social networks and will have their wins added against their listed projects on IMDb.
Additionally, all Monthly Award Winners will automatically be entered into our 'Best of Year' selection in their respective categories. Please note only the finalists of the 'Main Categories' will have their work screened at the event and overall winners of said categories will walk away with our specially designed trophies at our prestigious Gala Event (or for the cost of p&p can be sent to an address of your choosing - if supplied).
All Best of Year Winners will be listed on our web site for the next whole year and promoted across our social media platforms (if social media links have been supplied).
The Flicks Film Festival is an IMDb qualifying competition hosted out of the UK, celebrating independent films worldwide with a huge range of awards for various categories and genres. It is our duty is to discover ambitious and engaging films, to support independent filmmakers’ works and to help endorse their talent to a wider audience faster and consistently with our monthly competitions.
