Nominations are open until June 15th. The finalist will be announced on June 30th and winners will be determined by a combination of industry insiders and fan votes. A red carpet, cocktail hour and awards ceremony will be held at Covina Center for the Performing Arts in Covina, California.

    UPDATE UPDATE: the award was eventually received.

    UPDATE: still no sign of our award. Comms continue to be dreadful/non existent. Beyond infuriating.

    Really bad comms. Like all festivals recently this one has had its fair share of challenges, in particular with the loss of its venue. On the plus side they found a new one. On the downside however I have really struggled with them on the communications side of things. I sent multiple emails seeking clarification for their requests for info only to not receive a response. When I sent what they asked for they didn't download it and came and asked for it again. We ended up winning an award which is great. But even now, following their request for my address to send the trophy to, I simply cannot get confirmation from them that they've received it. I even offered twice to contribute to the shipping! But no answer and I keep chasing... Will we ever receive our award? Who knows. Very frustrating and disappointing.

    My company was up for seven awards and no one even contacted us to let us know who won.
    I even messaged Joanna directly 3 times with no response.
    WASTE OF MONEY!

    Response from festival:

    Good afternoon Brad,
    Thanks for your critique. I have sent you an email directly addressing some of your issues. I was in contact with the participants a lot through the Film Freeway platform. It seems like people wither received the emails or it went in to their spam folders. However, that is no excuse to not reach out and reply personally. Again, thanks for your critique and I will do better to communicate and make sure that everyone is getting the emails.
