Ouchy Film Awards (OFA) is a film & script award competition. After 4 successful editions, we organize our 5th edition in a new format. In this new format, we accept feature films, short films and movie screenplays. First time in the world, we will give some of our awards by using the artificial intelligence.
As in our previous editions, our event will take place in Lausanne, Switzerland. Before the final physical event in July 2022, we will have 4 seasonal sessions to select nominees for the final event.
We accept all genres of narrative films from all over the world.
We will award the best films after a comprehensive review process. Our evaluation includes the critique on six categories: acting, directing, editing, script, sound, and cinematography. As for the screenplays, the six categories evaluated are originality, structure, plot, pacing, characters and dialogues.
We have five categories of nominations for this edition:
- AI Award for Best Feature Film
- AI Award for Best Short Film
- AI Award for Best Acting
- AI Award for Best Screenplay

During the year, divised in four seasons, the films are selected by our international jury.

Screening: During the event, the films will be screened in front of the public.

Award: Once the selection is made, the films will be processed through AI. In order to give the Award, these results will be analysed by data analysis specialists from Largo-ai.

The winners of the third year competition will receive the trophies during our event.
