PRIZES & awards

Every winner will be presented an individual electronic certificate with the name of the author and the project. Certificates will be sent directly per e-mail shortly after the announcement of winners.

All selected projects, quarter-finalists, semi-finalist, finalists and of course winners will receive a laurel ready to be posted on social media or to be added to the poster of your project.

We will use our social media, website and FilmFreeway site to promote the best filmmakers and their art to the filmmaking community. We will also gladly interview you and give you public space at our website. More information regarding the interview can be found here.


We want others to see the most brilliant projects. Therefore we will screen segments of the best five seasonal projects and the end of every season online. To view more information about the online screening click here.
