Welcome filmmakers and artists of all kinds to The Sunshine State! Please join us in our first year here at the Golden Cali Film and Art Awards! We accept submissions of all kinds, be it short films, features, screenplays, photography, music/score, digital art, or anything else you can think of. If you have a passion for it, then we would love to help you share it with the world! No restriction on genre or length, there is a place for everyone with us! We have a special place in our hearts for independent films with a big heart, where you can feel the passion from the filmmaker, despite the size and scope of the film. We want to champion your projects and give them the audience they deserve.
We don't believe in judging projects simply based on budgetary restraints. We will judge a film with a $50 budget the same as a $500,000 budget. If the heart is there, then we'll see it and be proud to showcase your talents!
Each month, we will be holding smaller virtual film festivals to showcase your hard work! They will be LIVE Events, just virtual, so people from all over the world will be able to attend without even leaving their house!
We want to host a friendly and inviting event where filmmakers and artists can mingle and connect with each other about their passion for the arts, as well as make meaningful and lasting friendships with you all!
Please join us out here in the glow of California!
There will also be additional awards given in the case that we get a large enough amount of films in a specific genre (horror/sci-fi/drama...etc.)
We are only accepting submissions through FilmFreeway.
Entrants may submit as many works as they wish, so long as each submission is accompanied with an entry form and fee.
Submissions are open to the US and international entries.
You own the rights to you submitted works.
You don't hold Golden Cali Film and Art Awards responsible for claims of liability, losses, copyright, trademarks, infringement, or credits from your submission.
