It is also highly sensitive to the creative process and built on the basis of respecting the filmmakers as highly appreciated individuals contributing to our artistic culture.  

► OUR COMPETITIONS are made to restore enthusiasm and dignity to talented artists who have managed to create something extraordinary despite incredible obstacles, and have them emerge from the experience with us better than they entered.

► OUR MISSION is to give back what too many film festivals out there have forgotten to continuously provide to the filmmakers: attention and respect.

► OUR COMMITMENT is to successively become THE reference point of great international prestige where only the best filmmakers shine, and where everyone will feel welcomed in their uniqueness, empowering them to find new inspiration in their careers and the creation of their art.

  • I'm so happy and excited that our short film, "Hanging Buddy," has won Best Comedy, Best Screenplay/Short, and Best Voice Over at the Vegas Movie Awards.
    The festival has been in constant communication and offering so many resources to winning films.
    The three awards arrived yesterday and they're much larger and nicer than I anticipated.
    Thank you, Vegas Movie Awards!
