The Indie Online Film Awards is an awards body dedicated to indie films.
No budget? No problem. We know how painstakingly difficult it is to make a movie. We specialise in genre cinema, low-budget and independent films.
We want to help indie filmmakers find success by celebrating their achievements with a plethora of different awards.
