The International Manhattan Film Awards is happy to welcome filmmakers from all over the world to submit indie features, shorts and screenplays of all genres.

Our main goal is to showcase and promote film projects and artists for a diverse audience of cinephiles. It is a world-class event committed to present the best of this beautiful art called 'Cinema' and dedicated to all generations of filmmakers.

First of all, through "private" screenings, a team of professional screeners will evaluate all the submitted projects during each season.
All the official selections and the winners will receive the laurels and links to promote their work.

The goal of the International Manhattan Film Awards is to create the best virtual online festival possible to promote and award independent film and script projects from all around the world.
