WE TAKE CARE OF YOUR PROJECT
LIKE IT'S OUR OWN
Vegas Movie Awards™ (VMA) is a prestigious International Film Festival for filmmakers and screenwriters looking for global recognition and exposure, based in one of the most dynamic and classy cities in the world.
It is also highly sensitive to the creative process and built on the basis of respecting the filmmakers as highly appreciated individuals contributing to our artistic culture.
Now in its third year, the Vegas Movie Awards™ is one of the most influential and fastest-growing Festivals worldwide, with exciting and sought-after bi-monthly competitions aimed at the best talents that Independent Cinema has to offer.
Vegas Movie Awards™ have so far awarded ACADEMY AWARDS®, GOLDEN GLOBES®, EMMYS®, and BAFTA-winning actors and directors, as well as thousands of high-quality films and scripts from over 76 countries.
OUR COMPETITIONS are made to restore enthusiasm and dignity to talented artists who have managed to create something extraordinary despite incredible obstacles, and have them emerge from the experience with us better than they entered.
OUR MISSION is to give back what too many film festivals out there have forgotten to continuously provide to the filmmakers: attention and respect.
OUR COMMITMENT is to successively become THE reference point of great international prestige where only the best filmmakers shine, and where everyone will feel welcomed in their uniqueness, empowering them to find new inspiration in their careers and the creation of their art.
Whether they are prestigious award-winners or first-time filmmakers, we feel that everyone should have the opportunity to consolidate and build their careers in the most authoritative way possible.
All projects officially selected every two months will receive the Vegas Movie Awards™ official laurel,
and are promoted massively through our social media and website.
