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.
Films entered in multiple categories may win multiple awards.
Winners are guaranteed spot in our spring screening held in London, receive a digital certificate, laurels and our ‘Achievement’ statuette. All winners will be announced on our website and promoted via social media.
