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 bi-annual 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 deeply honored that our short film “The McHenry Trial - Don't Judge a Kid by Their Hoodie" was included in your festival. The event is well-organized with great communication. May the festival continue to provide filmmakers a platform that fosters creativity and self expression.
