IMDb qualifier Independent Shorts Awards is a Los Angeles-based international film festival, with monthly live screenings at the Raleigh Studios in Hollywood, CA, along with a major annual awards event at the same venue every August.
Besides the premiere screenings at one of the most prestigious venues of Hollywood, Independent Shorts Awards offers a distribution deal to all award winners through its streaming TV channel.
Independent Shorts Awards is looking for independent projects from all genres, particularly low or no-budget ones, as well as from all countries, especially from those traditionally underrepresented in the global film industry.
Each round, the submitted projects are judged by a random team of invited experts from academia and film industry, against a high standard of merit.
Every submission can add additional judging categories (via multiple submissions). The name(s) to be credited should be included in the cover letter or sent by email.
