Largo Film Awards is a seasonal international event. We accept short films, documentaries, animations, and web series of any genre. Each season (2-3 months) our jury members, who are formed by the industry specialists, watch, review, and rate for the submitted films. We announce the official selection of the season at the start of following season on our website.
We do not organize screenings for the seasonal events. But every two years, we publish a volume of Largo Journal in which the winners from seasonal selections are introduced in detail. Largo Journal is distributed to a large film network. The goal of Largo Journal is to introduce new filmmakers to the film industry. In the collaboration with Sofy.tv, we help you to distribute your short film. We add the best films from Largo selection to our curated pages created in a collaboration with Sofy.tv.
We introduce a new way of selection process. The most of film festivals make a very superficial selection process without any feedback at the end. Lots of submissions are rejected without a proper evaluation although the filmmakers pay significant fees. By developing a comprehensive evaluation system, we develop a review-feedback system in our evaluation process.
We enable two type of submissions:
Evaluation with Promotional Review: This submission enables to get a promotional review of the film at the end of decision. Upon request, this review is published on our website whether the film is selected or not.
Simple Submission: We still provide an option to submit your film without getting any feedback at the decision. The advantage of this option is to submit your film with very lower fees.
At the end of each month, the selected films are announced on our website. The films are selected under following categories:
Best Drama, Best Comedy, Best Documentary, Best Animation, Best Web-Series, Best Experimental, Best Advertisement, Best Music Video
Short films of any genre and format up to 60 minutes are accepted. Short films that are shorter than 20 minutes are submitted under a different category (Shorts < 20 min). Documentaries, web series, and experimental videos up to 60 minutes are accepted as well.
All films must have English subtitles and the production year shouldn’t be earlier than 2014.
The films which are selected for the yearly screening are required to send a DVD copy of the film to the organization.
The official selection of the season is announced at the first week of following season.
The promotional reviews of the films are published on our webpage.
