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.
