Welcome to GLOBAL FILM FESTIVAL AWARDS. We are a monthly and annual competition based in Los Angeles. We want the best worldwide film stories to promote filmmakers’ works for distributors.

The GFFA is an open door for independent filmmakers. It's a special jury formed by Hollywood producers, European and international distributors to promote films and new media.

What's the difference between submitting your project to GFFA and other film festivals?
GFFA is not the typical film festival that promotes only local artists. We have an original global channel with partners. To date, our press crew around the world includes press in the USA, Canada, England, Denmark, French, Italy, Spain, Japan, Australia, Argentina, and Brazil.

We understand the difficulties independent producers face to have a fully analyzed project. Our judging team is looking for potential films and filmmakers for scheduled meetings with executives from the film and television industry. GFFA is an opportunity for independent showrunners, directors, and producers to meet with a worldwide audience.

Every month, our jury will award the best independent filmmakers through private screenings. Every submission can submit to as many categories as fits the film to increase the chances of winning. We also provide honorable mentions for filmmakers who may not necessarily win but who should be acknowledged for their work. All the annual winners receive the prestigious Golden Star trophy, and monthly winners may contact our team to order their trophy and pay the production and shipping costs.

The GFFA Public Event will celebrate the "Best of Year" competitions. The Global Film Festival Awards has the honor of hosting eight exclusive artists on our team. The GFFA family is made up of diverse professionals who are looking for unique and creative films from around the world.

Good luck!

    “Global Film Festival Awards” is a very competitive festival that can grant credibility to the veteran film makers. Yet the judges have an open mind when it comes to new out of the box projects that are very creative, innovative, and artistic.
    Add to that, organizers and staff exhibit excellent communication at every stage.
    Highly recommended.
