2019 Faith & Spirituality Film Festival

Submission Details

Enter Now!

Filmmakers from around the world are invited to submit to Audience Awards’ 2019 Faith & Family Shorts Film Festival. We seek short films 45 minutes or under that explore the issues and faith and spirituality.

HOW THIS FESTIVAL WORKS: Once you successfully upload and submit your film to this festival on our site, your film is reviewed by our festival screeners for admittance. You will receive notice if your film is accepted or rejected before voting opens.

On the voting open date, your film is juried by our preliminary jury panel and the global audience. From this first round, the top 3 films with the most votes and the top 5 preliminary jury-selected films advance to the finals round. If audience winners are preliminary jury selections, the prelim jury will select additional films so that there are always 8 finalist films. From the 8 films, the expert jury panel will select their top 5 films. These films are the finalists of this festival and receive an optional non-exclusive distribution deal.

2 things: 

1. Your film will be publicly viewed, so make sure it’s the right time for your film to gain an online audience. If it’s too early for the public to watch your short film online, we invite you to come back next year and submit.

2. 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.
