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.

    Pinnacle Film Awards is a fantastic venue. Professionally run with great communication and feedback. We were very fortunate to have Bequest selected as Best Narrative Short Silver Award and Best Actress Silver Award Imelda Paclibar. Thank you all!!

    The Pinnacle Film Awards was one of the first festivals we participated in...we really enjoyed following it and still do! Our short film comedy GPS won the Platinum award for Best Pilot/Web Series and the screenplay for Episode 1 won the Bronze award in the same month! We look forward to participating in this festival again...hopefully soon!

  • The Pinnacle Film Awards is probably one of the best run events I've entered my film into and will be sure to submit my next film! Very honored to have won the Diamond Award for Best Animation Short and the Platinum Award for Best Director. I would encourage anyone trying to get their film into any events or festivals to submit to The Pinnacle Film Awards.

    Aptly named, because way at the quality,
    professionalism, communications, knowledge of
    films, presentation (laurels, certificates, website).
    Thank you so much for recognizing Hollywood Mouth 3
    with platinum for Narrative Feature and bronze for director
    and screenplay. Have to say "highest recommendation"
    and thanks for being there for filmmakers.
