Royal Wolf Film Awards is an online 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!

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

Films entered in MULTIPLE CATEGORIES may win multiple awards!

Each Monthly winner will get a digital laurel, a digital certificate, and has the option to purchase a trophy.

At the end of each season, a "BEST OF THE MONTH" trophy is awarded and delivered to ONE top rated project.

At the end of twelve seasons, a "BEST OF THE YEAR" trophy is awarded and delivered to ONE top rated project selected from a pool of winning films in the previous twelve months.
