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 October 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 only award the best filmmakers after a comprehensive review process. Our evaluation includes the critique on six categories: acting, directing, editing, script, sound, and cinematography.

We have three categories of nominations for this edition:
- Best Feature Film
- Best Short Film
- Best Acting
- Best Screenplay
- AI Award for Best Screenplay
- AI Award for Best Short Film

For each category, 5 films will be nominated by our international jury. The nominees will be invited to Lausanne for the event.

In the event, we will have two different jury. First jury members will be experienced people from the movie industry. Second jury will be the artificial intelligence.
