Willkommen in Berlin! FILMHAUS is an online film, new media and screenwriting competition and official IMDb qualifier with premium state-of-the-art FASTTRACK and PROMOTION services to advance your agenda in record-timing.
This cool little Berlin fest hosts MONTHLY/BIMONTHLY film competition rounds (depending on submission volume), but FASTTRACK allows you to gain IMDb-qualified category nominations within 7-days without having to wait 3-8 weeks for the final results list for that specific competition round.
FILMHAUS has a global scope and desire to recognise independent cinema amongst narrative-driven, multi-genre films.

Mark Zuckerberg was not wrong when he predicted in his notable 2016 keynote at Barcelona's Mobile World Congress that we were heading into a future where the majority of content to be consumed will be VIDEO. In an excruciatingly saturated content climate merged with monetary pressures, it can be the toughest ordain for an independent filmmaker to gain recognition for his vision and craft out in the festival circuit.

FILMHAUS's mission is to host a competitive arena in which to test the caliber of your audiovisual stories in record-timing.
