Film Festival Follow Your Heart
The Follow Your Heart Film Festival is an international short film festival.
The selected annual winners will be shown in front of a live audience at the annual event. We are organizing a seasonal show that gives filmmakers a chance to win individual laurels, a certificate and advertising on our social networks. At the end of the year, all the winners' films will be shown at the annual Film Festival "Follow Your Heart", where they will compete for the main prize in each nomination.
The mission of the Film Festival "Follow Your Heart" is to promote talented filmmakers of all ages whose films touch the heart.
All foreign films must have English SUBTITLES
The winners will be announced on social media pages every month.
Each file is officially selected, and finalists will be selected at the end of each month. Thus, the filmmakers will soon find out about the selection.
Awards and prize-winners
Each season, our jury will carefully select the filmmakers and their projects that our committee considers the most attractive. Awards will be presented in several ‘Main Categories'. In addition, each application can add an unlimited number of ‘Additional Subcategories'.
Each Winner of the Award will receive your Official Certificate and a Bay Leaf by email. The certificate will be ready for printing, posting on social networks and advertising on the website.
The winners will be advertised on our social networks with posters, photos from the film, promotion of directors and producers.
Each winner of the "Best of the Year" contest will be listed on our website throughout the next year and will be promoted on our social media platforms.
