Top Indie Film Awards

Final Deadline: Monthly.

No budget? No problem. We know how painstakingly difficult it is to make a movie. Heck, we even know how hard it is just to write a good script (it's one of the biggest, most horribly unappreciated but crucially important parts of the entire process) so don't worry if your budget was tiny (or non-existent). The fact is we're sick of Hollywood. They only care about brands and marketing.

Movies, scripts, and web series are all welcome! We give special attention to low budget films especially no budget entries!
