TOP FILM AWARDS is an awards ceremony for films and filmmakers all around world. The main goal of the awards is to provide an exceptional space for the creation and presentation of quality multi-genre art production. The panel of our judges identifies and encourages talent of all skill levels as we strive to build and support the independent film community.

We cooperate with various distributors in Europe and American film market, to whom we regularly offer the best short and feature-length movies. If your film will be of interest to various investors or distributors, we will help you with the distribution of your film.

We try to be the best opportunity for independent showrunners, directors, and producers to meet with a worldwide audience. Every filmmaker can submit to as many categories as fits the film to increase the chances of winning. We also provide honorable mentions for filmmakers who may not necessarily win but who should be acknowledged for their work.

The ceremony for the winners will be held online. We believe that this is the way we will bring film art closer to more people unlike the live screening hosted for a audience.

    Thank you Suzanne! Keep up the great work:)

  • Chris Pearce

    I am thrilled that my script The Wakefields (all 647 pages of it) won the Best Television Script category in the latest edition of the Top Film Awards. I would imagine this might increase my chances of finding a producer who likes historical drama set in early 19th century Manchester area of the UK. Fingers crossed.
