We show work online with submitter approval only. Once a year we watch and read all submissions again. We screen selected work at the live event in Los Angeles.
We announce script, photography, score and poster winners as well.

    Should clarify a non-event because it appears they host an event when in fact they only send out the certificates.

    It was an honor to have "Hollywood Mouth 2" selected as a Semi-Finalist because it made me feel that someone there understood my film! I've enjoyed the recognition a lot. The communication at this festival was the best! Notifications were clear and on time. Thank you so much for the award!
