The RED Movie Awards (Reims Excellence Director) is an International Season competition with a public Screening Event in Reims every years, celebrating films and filmmakers from all around the world.

OUR MISSION is to give back what too many film festivals out there have forgotten to continuously provide to the filmmakers: attention and respect. We want to find, cultivate and celebrate the very best in international and home grown talent across all departments of independent film.

The annual ceremony will take place in Reims, capital of champagne and the French "art de vivre". The best films will be shown at a cinema with a "Belle Epoque" decoration. For the awards ceremony, bring your best suit and your best dress to walk through our RED carpet and photo-call, many journalists will be present to cover the event. Our jury, represented by professionals from the film industry, will elect the Best Of the Year during the ceremony, and the winners will be able to take home the prestigious RED Award.

An incredible competition with films awarded at OSCAR and BAFTA. Our Jury composed by Lee Arenberg (Pirates of the Caribbean), Bernard Farcy (Taxi saga), Bruno Choël (French voice of Johnny Depp, Ewan McGregor), Alexandre Gillet (French voice of Chris Evans, Elijah Wood)

Its your chance, to be the one laureate who will be in our gala evening, and walk on the red carpet.

The RED AWARD is more than a trophy, it is a masterpiece of art representing success and excellence for filmmakers. It is designed by the RED TEAM and manufactured by the Society Awards, an American company best known for its YouTube awards and manufacturing of high-profile entertainment industry awards, including the Emmy Award, Golden Globe Award.

Every seasons, our Jury will award the best films through private screenings. Every submitter can enter multiple categories to increase their probability to win an award. Every Official Selection, Semi-Finalist, Finalist and Winner will receive our Official Laurels. Award Winners will also receive our Official Certificate in HQ digital format, may order their Trophy and will be listed on our website.

    From Christopher R. Owens, President, CESO Enterprises, Inc.

    On behalf of CESO ENTERPRISES, INC., Alyssa Dann, Chris Oledude, and all of our production participants, I would like to compliment the organizers and operators of Red Movie Awards When we created our first music video (which was long enough to be a short film), we knew nothing about film festivals. With the help of FilmFreeway, we started researching. The categories were good. Everyone who contacted us on behalf of this festival was helpful. The submissions looked excellent.

    It was indeed exciting to discover this new world and to be so warmly welcomed by the inhabitants! To have GEORGE FLOYD: SAY THEIR NAMES selected for inclusion was an honor in and of itself.

    We were happy to “get the word out” and continue motivating people worldwide to consider the injustices embedded within our nation’s criminal justice system. After all, situations where a powerful segment of the population uses its law enforcement apparatus to abuse and oppress other segments of the population are recognizable in and common too many societies.
    We recommend submitting your work and we certainly intend to participate again in the future.

    Peace and stay safe!
