Pinnacle Film Awards is a bi-monthly awards platform that is dedicated to honoring projects from all over the world.

We are devoted to finding innovative independent artists who are creating groundbreaking work in their respective fields, and giving them a place to celebrate their artistry. We are looking for edgy, unique, and thought provoking pieces with a fresh voice.

If this defines the type of work you are currently creating then we would love for you to submit your project today!

A panel of film industry professionals will review your project by breaking it down into categories. For example; Writing: Did the project have a strong structural viewpoint and a good plot that tells both an intriguing and unusual story? etc. etc.

At the end of each season a "BEST OF SHOW" trophy is awarded and delivered to one top rated project.

Each season we give filmmakers the opportunity to submit their latest work and compete with others.

Each Bi-monthly winner will receive a digital laurel and a digital certificate.

They are true professionals and will give your project it’s undivided attention regardless of how many submissions they receive. I can honestly say that alone is worth it’s weight in gold. 10 out of 10 stars across the board!!!
