IMDb Qualifier's VEGAS MOVIE AWARDS™ (VMA) is one of the most influential and fastest-growing Festivals worldwide for filmmakers and screenwriters looking for global recognition and exposure, based in one of the most spectacular cities in the world.
OUR COMPETITIONS and LIVE GALAS are made to restore enthusiasm and dignity to talented artists who have managed to create something extraordinary despite incredible obstacles, starting from a simple idea.
