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.

We choose nominees and winners every month, so filmmakers don't have to wait an entire year for results. This enables you to quickly build buzz for your project.

Overall Rating
  • Thank you INDIE ONLINE FILM AWARD for giving our humble production company our very first award ever for our music video TRANSCEND: Starring Alyssa Glitters. What a great experience it was to have our project play along side so many fantastic movies. The crew and I had a blast watching all of the amazingly creative projects. We can't wait to submit our next projects in the coming months. PEACE FOR UKRAINE!
