This is a monthly contested international online film festival with an annual winner with Certificate and trophy . The winning film of each monthly contest has to compete with each other at the end of the year and overall winners will be chosen by our esteemed jury of film critics and filmmakers.
We accept feature films, short films, documentaries, animations, music video and web series of any genre. Every months our judges will watch and rate the submitted films. The Best Films announced as the winner of the month.
However, as physical festival can only welcome a few filmmakers, we realized that we wanted to be able to share more movies and this all year long. That is why we have decided to create an online film festival that will be like an "all year long festival"
