Welcome to GLOBAL FILM FESTIVAL AWARDS. We are a monthly and annual competition based in Los Angeles. We want the best worldwide film stories to promote filmmakers’ works for distributors.

The GFFA is an open door for independent filmmakers. It's a special jury formed by Hollywood producers, European and international distributors to promote films and new media.

What's the difference between submitting your project to GFFA and other film festivals?
GFFA is not the typical film festival that promotes only local artists. We have an original global channel with partners. To date, our press crew around the world includes press in the USA, Canada, England, Denmark, French, Italy, Spain, Japan, Australia, Argentina, and Brazil.

We understand the difficulties independent producers face to have a fully analyzed project. Our judging team is looking for potential films and filmmakers for scheduled meetings with executives from the film and television industry. GFFA is an opportunity for independent showrunners, directors, and producers to meet with a worldwide audience.

Every month, our jury will award the best independent filmmakers through private screenings. Every submission can submit to as many categories as fits the film to increase the chances of winning. We also provide honorable mentions for filmmakers who may not necessarily win but who should be acknowledged for their work. All the annual winners receive the prestigious Golden Star trophy, and monthly winners may contact our team to order their trophy and pay the production and shipping costs.

The GFFA Public Event will celebrate the "Best of Year" competitions. The Global Film Festival Awards has the honor of hosting eight exclusive artists on our team. The GFFA family is made up of diverse professionals who are looking for unique and creative films from around the world.

Our Crimmy trophies are designed by "The Conjuring" and "Annabelle" special effects artist Tony Rosen, who also designed the famous "Annabelle" doll for both films. Each trophy is handmade and signed by Tony himself.

Sponsored in part by ShortsTV, the world's largest distributor of short films, all submitted and accepted short films have the chance for worldwide broadcast deals on their cable channel, ShortsTV, which plays Oscar winning short films all over the globe. Screenplay winners will also compete to win scriptwriting software from FinalDraft as well as free listings on InkTip, where producers go for scripts and writers. Producers have made more than 300 films from scripts and writers they found through InkTip.

In 2017 "Best of South Carolina" named Crimson Screen one of the top 10 festivals in South Carolina and in 2015 readers of HORROR SOCIETY voted us their 2nd favorite horror film festival in the USA! Festival attendees come out to walk the "dREaD Carpet" dressed in their favorite costumes and get to meet the filmmakers during our mixers and Q&A sessions after film screenings.

We are seeking all genres of films and screenplays that contain horror element such as sci-fi, fantasy, comedy, underground, experimental and more...as long as there are horror elements. We take pride in the variety of horror selections at our annual festival and encourage filmmakers to submit any type of film and screenplay with horror, thriller, and suspense elements and themes! If you are lucky enough to be chosen as an official selection, you definitely will want to attend! We are not like any other film festival out there! We provide our attending filmmakers with two free VIP passes, a bag of swag, a personal welcome letter with wax sealed envelope embedded with our logo, and lots of other goodies also!

Filmmakers and VIP pass holders also have access to mixers as well as discounts at various bars and restaurants during the fest. At past festivals we have held "Maverick Filmmaking" workshops by such filmmakers as Steve Balderson, lectures on H.P. Lovecraft by authors such as W. Scott Poole, and have also awarded our new annual "Horror Icon" award to Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp) in 2016 and Joe Bob Briggs in 2017, and Mark Patton (Nightmare on Elm Street 2) in 2018!

SLEEPY HOLLOW INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL (SHIFF), a celebration of outstanding genre cinema in the very cradle of the American Supernatural is taking place in Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown, NY, on October 10-13, 2019, and is now accepting film and script submissions! Be a part of this wondrous exploration of creative cinema, right in the heart of the historic Hudson Valley region, during its legendary Halloween season!

This special place, this remarkable hollow of the indescribable, bewitched not only Washington Irving, the author of the legendary short story, but also artists of every creative pursuit for the next two centuries—including masters of the cinematic arts.

SHIFF celebrates this legacy of artistic inspiration and achievement. In addition to the bicentennial of his story—and an uncanny happenstance worthy of Irving himself—2019 is also the 70th anniversary of the beloved 1949 Walt Disney animated classic The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, and the 20th anniversary of Tim Burton's acclaimed 2009 feature film, Sleepy Hollow. The festival will commemorate both of these big-screen landmarks with one-of-a-kind event showings.

But it is not enough to look back. Just as Irving used the Hudson Valley as a wellspring of extraordinary ideas to push his art forward, SHIFF strives to bring important works from current and future filmmakers into the world with exciting new films and unproduced screenplays in competition, and premiere screenings.

The festival's advisory board, selection committees and jury will include film and literary professionals with industry experience who will program and award new films and unproduced screenplays of quality, of all genres, and that touch upon, relate to or simply explore the otherworldly or unknown.

The 1st place winner of SHIFF's UNPRODUCED SCREENPLAY COMPETITION will be presented with a statuette at our closing night awards ceremony, in addition to a cash prize of $500, and an InkTip prize package. 2nd and 3rd place winners will be announced at our closing night awards ceremony, and will win a cash prize of $250 each, and an InkTip prize package. All three winners will be posted on SHIFF's official site and socials, announced on our "winners" PR blast to media outlets, and published in the fest's "winners" article in the Hudson Valley area newspaper, the River Journal.
