We provide awards and judging in many categories by our industry expert panel so that your project can get rightfully deserved recognition.

Awards will be given by nation, as well as by category.

Rules and regulations

To have your film considered for a main award, it must be entered as a film, not just a category. If your film reaches the finalist status, it will be considered for category awards at no additional charge. To ensure that you are also considered for category awards, you can also enter categories separately - just in case you don't reach the final round. (Again, Category Awards are done by a separate judging panel within that category in the industry).

· Entries must be in English or - Subtitled, dubbed in English.
· Every submission has to pick one main category.
· Multiple entries are allowed for each filmmaker and each entry may be entered in multiple categories.
· All entries should be sent via FilmFreeway. Please don't send discs or any downloadable files to us.
· Works in progress are accepted.
· Entries will not be returned.
· Entry fees are non-refundable

    Mile High International Film Festival provided me with a great festival experience and is an outstanding professional festival. Mile High International Film Festival is a fantastic venue for writers to showcase their screenplays. Thank you very much for recognizing and selecting my "Soul's On Fire" script as a Best US Screenplay Finalist.
