The United States Film Festival Awards was established in 2013 to honor national and international filmmakers and screenwriters of exemplary works. 

The America's are known throughout the world for their accomplishments in this industry, and we are here to award all filmmakers which reach above and beyond.

Held on a quarterly basis, USAFF has awards in feature films, documentaries, short films, tv pilots, up-coming film trailers, and screenplays.

Awards are given both by nation, and also as overall accomplishments.

Judging is done by industry professionals, and categorical judging is carried out by professionals within that category. All film awards are given by the posted notification date. Category awards are done by a   secondary judging panel by industry professionals within those categories.

To have your film considered for a MAIN award, it MUST be entered as a film, not just a category. If your film reaches Finalist status, it will be considered for category awards at no additional charge. To ensure you are also considered for category awards, you can also enter categories separately - just in case you don't reach the final round. (Again, Category Awards are done by a separate judging panel within that category in the industry).

We are proud to announce that as of the second session in 2020, we will be offering live screenings to all finalists. Welcome to America!

    For an online festival, great with communication throughout the process. Worth the entry fee, and as of next year, they are doing live screenings - which is great. Thanks for accepting us into your festival this year.
