Latitude Film Awards is an independent film competition dedicated to recognising, showcasing, promoting and awarding filmmakers around the world.

Awards will be presented to independent filmmakers that produce unique and compelling films. Our aim is to honour, celebrate and award the best talent in the global filmmaking community.

Submissions do not compete against each other. Instead, all projects are judged against a high standard of merit of various departments, and are scored accordingly based on Originality/Creativity, Direction, Writing, Cinematography, Performances, Production Value, Pacing, Structure and Sound/Music.

The winners of the Platinum Award are guaranteed a spot in our screening taking place in London on 27th February 2020.

Films entered in multiple categories may win multiple awards.

    It is a great honour for the whole team and me to enter this competition. I am delighted to see that this film has been appreciated by a very competent jury with extensive professional experience. Please allow me to thank each and every member for the time and patience invested in watching the film, as well as for appreciating the result of our work and, what is more, for awarding us a prize we are so proud of.

  • Really delighted for my Experimental short film 'Peter, Shirley and Louis' to be awarded a Bronze and great to gain truly objective appreciation fo the judges. Shall enter again next year to see if I can make it to the big screen, which by then will hopefully be a reality - long live the collective cinematic experience!
