The Indy Film Awards are the competitive section of a new multi-faceted movie platform, aimed at providing trusted reviews of independent content, as well as a soapbox for filmmakers with something to say to reach distributors and festivals from.

Along with screening winners, we provided a guarantee that no other film event can match; every single film submitted will receive constructive feedback in the way of a film review published on our site (min. 100 words), as well as the option to supply a ‘film profile’ for the site, through which festivals, distributors and producers in our network can contact them.

Submissions for our 2020/21 season are also open via FilmFreeway.

Entries for the Indy Film Library must provide a trailer, stills, synopsis and screening information, contact details, and information they wish to be included in a film profile. Director statements are also welcomed.

Upon submission of their film, the filmmaker supplies consent to Indy Film Library to publish a review of their film, alongside their trailer, even if the review is negative. Every piece written will contain constructive notes, however we make no guarantee of a positive review, and reserve the right to publish criticism.

At time of submission, the filmmaker also supplies consent for Indy Film Library to screen the film as part of its annual selection, should it be selected. Indy Film Library does not pay screening fees.
