Monte Carlo Movie Awards is a quarterly online event that is committed to bringing filmmakers of all levels – even beginners – a chance at taking home a festival award. The festival showcases films from various countries and will be a vital hub for indie film makers to prove their talent to a true audience as well as jurors.
This festival encourages filmmakers from all countries to enter the Film Competition where we will be screening new feature-length films, high-quality short films, documentaries, music videos, and web series as well as conduct talks with industry special guests. Although the festival prefers to screen newer films, all submissions will be considered. The festival will consider any film in any genre. From the entertaining to the educational, inspirational to thought-provoking, comedic to ironic, the festvial is the place to showcase your films to the widest possible live audience.
So if you’re a feature film filmmaker or a filmmaker that creates innovative short films – whether they’re drama, comedy, animated, documentary (e.g. observational, travel, humanitarian, environmental), or experimental – you’re welcome to enter. And yes, we prefer films in any languages. However, films other than English language, needs to have French or English subtitles.

  • Delighted to be offered a discount and rated as a semi-finalist. Thought this might be a cool festival, but it seems like it is just like all the other festivals that offer a discount, rate your film as a semi-finalist. The event date comes and goes with no further notification, to their credit, they update their web site. Terrible communication.
