London Film Awards

Awards

London Film AwardsEach year the London Film Awards recognizes and awards the work of independent film's best and brightest contemporary filmmakers and screenwriters spanning the globe. 

The London Film Awards places an emphasis on exclusivity and recognizes and awards only the most finely produced films and screenplays with honors.  The Grand Prize Winners of each official competition category, as determined by our Official Jury, each receive the coveted Gold Lion Award as commemoration of their exemplary achievements.  Additionally, the London Film Awards offers various Special Achievement Awards for standout productions.

Honoring films and screenplays from over 70 countries around the world, the London Film Awards features over 20 distinct competition categories including Feature Films, Short Films, Documentaries, Student Films, Animation, Television Advertisements, Music Videos, a screenwriting competition and more.  The Official Jury will select one exclusive Grand Prize Winner for each official competition category, the awards’ highest and most esteemed honor.  To preserve the prestige and exclusivity of the awards, only a maximum of one project per competition category is honored with the pretigious Gold Lion Award.

For productions that also display exceptional quality and merit and are worthy of special recognition, Special Jury Awards and the Silver Lion Award are also presented to worthy productions at the discretion of the Official Jury.
