HOLLYWOOD INDEPENDENT FILMMAKER AWARDS is an independent film competition and live screening event combined with a unique opportunity for PR geared toward independent filmmakers worldwide.

Making an independent movie is a challenge and we here at HOLLYWOOD INDEPENDENT FILMMAKER AWARDS and FESTIVAL want to help you put your film on the path to success with all of the recognition, notoriety and accolades you and your film deserve.

As HOLLYWOOD INDEPENDENT FILMMAKER AWARDS and FESTIVAL is committed to showcasing TRULY independent films, we are dedicated to finding those "hidden gems" that may otherwise be overlooked by the bigger festivals because of the lack of name recognition or budget.

We are thrilled to announce that, once again, we will be screening selected winning films at PARAMOUNT STUDIOS in Hollywood on TBA 2021. Invaluable exposure for your hard work! ***DUE TO THE CURRENT WORLDWIDE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, THE LIVE SCREENING DATE IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE.
