The Inside Film Festival is an online arm of the Onyko Film Awards. While the "ONYKO" does offline screenings, the "INSIDE" is focused on online screenings. Winners are chosen every month. From the monthly winners, a team of judges selects films for the annual online event.
As well as the switch to NFT trophies for "ONYKO", this decision was chosen by us because of the events of recent time (COVID19 and the war in Ukraine). The online format for many at such times is the most acceptable.
We offer our winners the opportunity to purchase NFT (NFT trophies). On request, we can write in the description to whom, for which film in which nomination and in which year the award was presented.
