If you’ve made a film, 45 minutes or under, which shows the many iterations of identity, we invite you to enter the Audience Awards LGBTQ Film Festival. Though an agenda isn’t necessary to submit, you may experience one of these barrier-breaking benefits by participating. How this festival works: We are an online community supporting filmmakers and their films. If accepted into this festival, you will upload your film to where the public will be able to screen, comment and vote for your film during the online portion of the festival. ****In the event that your film is accepted to this festival, you will receive an email that explains how to submit your film. You will then need to upload your film before the festival start date here: HOW THE FINALISTS ARE DETERMINED: From the first round of live audience and jury voting on The Audience Awards platform, the top 3 films with the most votes and the top 4 jury-selected films advance to the prestigious finals round. The finalist films are judged by an esteemed panel of industry jurors. The top 5 final jury winners are deemed the finalists. A note on audience voting: If you want your friends and family to vote for your film, share away. Audience voting greatly increases your views & exposure for your film and career, but social sharing is not necessary to win. The jury ultimately chooses the finalists and winners of the festival.

Films are judged by the audience as well as industry professionals. Previous jurors represent Vice, YouTube, Variety, Sundance and the list goes on. We are committed to providing a stage for diverse, emerging talent and their creative work. Our platform is dedicated to celebrating the power of storytelling and building an audience. Created by filmmakers, for filmmakers, Audience Awards offers an invaluable platform for exposure.
