Largo Film Awards is a monthly international event. We accept short films, documentaries, animations, and web series of any genre. Each month our jury, which is formed by the industry specialists, watch, review, and rate for the submitted films. We announce the official selection of the month at the start of following month on our website. Next, with a second cycle of reviews, the winners of the months are announced at each category.

We do not organize screenings for the monthly events. But every year, we publish a volume of Largo Journal in which the winners from monthly selections are introduced in detail. Largo Journal is distributed to a large film network. The goal of Largo Journal is to introduce new filmmakers to the film industry. We also determine the best film of the year in the Largo Journal. The best film of the year is determined by the members of Largo Academy, which is formed by young and successful filmmakers.

We also organize occasional screenings in different cities. In these screenings, a selection of monthly winners are exhibited to the public. Our first screening venue will be announced soon.

Largo Film Awards presents a new concept of film festivals. We adapt a new approach for two important basics of film festivals: Selection and Location.

SELECTION

We introduce a new way of selection process. The most of film festivals make a very superficial selection process without any feedback at the end. Lots of submissions are rejected without a proper evaluation although the filmmakers pay significant fees. By developing a comprehensive evaluation system, we develop a review-feedback system in our evaluation process.

We enable three type of submissions:

Evaluation with 3 Reviewers: This submission secures that your film is viewed by three reviewers. The decision is posted to the submitter with the written reviews-critique of assigned reviewers.

Evaluation with Promotional Review: This submission enables to get a promotional review of the film at the end of decision. Upon request, this review is published on our website whether the film is selected or not.

Simple Submission: We still provide an option to submit your film without getting any feedback at the decision. The advantage of this option is to submit your film with very lower fees.

At the end of each month, the selected films are announced on our website. The films are selected under following categories:

Best Film, Best Documentary, Best Animation, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Original Score, Best Editing, Best Experimental, Best Web Series

Rules & Terms

Short films of any genre and format up to 60 minutes are accepted. Short films that are shorter than 20 minutes are submitted under a different category (Shorts < 20 min). Documentaries, web series, and experimental videos up to 60 minutes are accepted as well.

All films must have English subtitles and the production year shouldn’t be earlier than 2012.

The films which are selected for the yearly screening are required to send a DVD copy of the film to the organization.

The official selection of the month is announced at the first week of following month. Then the winners of the month are announced one week later.

The promotional reviews of the films are published on our webpage.

Multiple entries are allowed.

There is no premiere requirement.
