"Take the Metro." That's something often heard everyday, across the globe in cities like Boston, Chicago, LA, London, New York, Sydney, and Vancouver. A Metro is a system that helps people get from a starting point to an endpoint -- it's a method to reach one's goals. And much like a fast moving train, The Metro Film & TV Awards help Filmmakers reach their goals by way of direct opportunities for recognition and publicity of high quality films and new media.
A monthly and annual event. The Metro TV & Film Awards are International* in scope and support most every type of content from across the globe. Metro accepts Nominations and selections online (FREE.)
*Please take note that we have reached our capacity for foreign language films, and at this time we can no longer accept content that does not have English Dialog...This means that subtitled films are NOT accepted at this juncture.
Metro publicizes the Festival and its participating filmmakers online and to an audience of over 425,000 Subscribers on Roku, Fire, Android and Smart TV devices.
A content's Release Window(s) is not a determining factor for consideration in the Festival. Metro aims to encourage filmmakers, rather than looking for methods of exclusion.
Every month, our jury will award the best independent filmmakers through private screenings and/or a point system based upon viewership on Vimeo, Youtube, and other platforms such as TV-Apps.
There are no fixed number of awards. The Best of Show winner (scheduled for 2019) will receive the prestigious Metro Statuette, and monthly winners may contact our team to order their Gold Statuette or Plaque and pay the production and shipping costs.
After the Fest, Metro offers (optional) distribution through its Connected TV partners who are expected to reach 1 Million Subscribers in 2019.
Quality and creativity are celebrated in several levels of awards including the Heart of Gold Awards and The Best of Show, Excellence in Film, Special Mention, Films of Merit, Special Recognition, and Audience Choice.
The Metro Statuette's and Plaque's are exceptional in the Film and Television industry. These works of art honor works of art. Covered with your choice of Gold, Silver, or Brass the Awards are manufactured by a company that makes gorgeous, custom awards (in limited editions.)
A step up from standard printed Certificates, Metro also offers Official Selection and Nominee Plaques covered with Gold Leaf to all participants (in limited editions.)
Gold Laurel stickers are available (by special order) for commemoration and placement on DVD's and Ancillary products. New products that will help filmmakers promote their success are being developed all the time.
You agree to indemnify and hold harmless Metro from and against any and all claims, liabilities, losses, damages, and expenses (including but not limited to attorney's fees, and costs of the court) which may be incurred by reason of any claim involving copyright, trademark, credits, publicity, screening, and loss of or damage to the screening videos entered.
You understand that Metro is not a traditional festival and Metro honors participants on a varied schedule (seasonal, monthly, annually and/or bi-annually) and deadlines are indicated on the Metro entry form. This unique event is an international awards competition.
Free digital downloads of Metro laurels will be made available and participants are under no obligation to purchase an Award.
These terms are subject to change. Additional details and Entry Guidelines are available on www.MetroFilmFestival.com
