WE TAKE CARE OF YOUR PROJECT

LIKE IT'S OUR OWN

Vegas Movie Awards™ (VMA) is a prestigious and caring monthly competition and annual online Film Festival

for filmmakers worldwide, based in one of the most dynamic and classy cities in the world.

 

Now in its second year, the Vegas Movie Awards™  have so far awarded ACADEMY AWARDS®, GOLDEN GLOBES®,

and BAFTA-winning actors and directors, but most of all, hundreds of films and scripts made with heart.

 

We are filmmakers, producers, and entrepreneurs, exactly like you.

We know what it’s like to struggle to get noticed and get recognition for our hard work. And we really understand

your concerns about how another Film Festival like ours could make a difference in your career.

In the 74 Film Festivals worldwide we took part in so far, we rarely felt our projects were treated with half the care

we put into actually making them…we were just numbers, not worthy of proper communication from the festivals, sometimes not even the bare necessary like be notified if we were selected or not...

 

That’s why we decided to bring justice to our fellow filmmakers.

So far, more than 2,000 filmmakers and screenwriters worldwide entrusted us

with the most valuable thing for them: their own projects.

 

We are committed to becoming THE MOST CARING FILM FESTIVAL EVER,

and we can’t wait to let you experience how it feels to have your project treated with the utmost care and respect. 

 

GIVE YOUR CAREER AND YOUR HARD WORK THE CARE THEY DESERVE.

 

Let us help you get that exposure you demand, by amplifying your voice.

We will put you and your project in the spotlight, right in the city of a thousand lights.

 

TRY US. SUBMIT NOW.

 

You definitely won’t regret it.
