    You kept your date with notifications and final winners. Elated to find my documentary LIVING ON THE EDGE - DEGLAMOURIZING BOLLYWOOD in third place in feature length documentary. Would definitely like to come back again with my next documentary. Would appreciate if you could let me know if third place in the said category is winner or semi finalist and if so upgrade it on FilmFreeway. It still mentions SELECTED

    I can't recommend Hollywood Hills Film Awards highly enough. Their team are friendly, charming and any queries were replied to promptly. They sent us really top quality photos and artwork to add to our Social Media and the prestige their award has given our web series has been huge.
