Upcoming Vegas CineFest Event Dates Postponed Information.

Due to the rapidly evolving nature of events, we do not currently have an exact date of when that will be, however we hope to have a date soon and think that the Festival Event will takG2EJZ2dOqzX56Y1EQY%3D&param4=hCnqV8iYhcxJ8iNIX4W0h5lX%2BTiGVQRFr9QrJ7mD9OE%3De place in Late October 2022.

THE VEGAS CINEFEST and Awards is an International Film Festival founded in 2008.

We felt there was a lack of effective contests and awards being offered for short and indie projects that could advance the careers of new writers and filmmakers.

We began discussing the idea of launching such a festival and were soon joined by industry veterans whose contributions made the concept a reality and The International Vegas Cine Fest Awards was born. Vegas Cine Fest is an IMDB Qualifying Festival.

A non profit organization, it is one of the few film festival contests providing writers and filmmakers with the assistance needed to produce and expose their projects and then continue on to other major film festivals around the world.

By becoming a part of the International Vegas Cine Fest Awards you will be joining a growing number of professionals in the entertainment industry who are recognized for supporting other artists and have the excitement of participating in a Film Festival that is destined to become a springboard for many of tomorrow’s top filmmakers.

    We are so grateful for this opportunity and so humbled that your most prestigious film festival selected our international award winning documentary feature film "AKWAABA The Awakening". We thank you and your team for supporting artists in making dreams come true. Our film...God's hands.

    Thank you so much for including my road movie script "Orphans of the Interstate", part of which takes places in Vegas! Cinefest's inclusion and promotion of "Orphans of the Interstate" will increase its potential as a full-fledged, multi-location production!

  • Thank you Vegas Cinefest International Film Festival. "Zenny's Picasso" is a story of overcoming great odds to survive two dangerous bullies. It also comes with a "Real" Picasso painting as part of the package. The story has a great antagonist, Lil' Nu which was written expressly for Eric Andre. Thanks again! Reverend Kenny Kozlowski

    I received an email saying i was accepted into the 2022 festival and I never heard anything after that until I just got the email from Film Freeway asking me to review the festival. I checked their page and it still says that the dates are pending but two people somehow gave the 2022 festival a positive review even though it never happened. I'm very confused. I was excited to be part of this festival but nothing happened. I would love to change my review if they get back to me and let me know what is going on.
