Caminhando no calçadão

The South America Awards is an Online Competitive Film Festival created to give opportunity for filmmakers from all around the world to showcase their projects to great online audiences, while interacting with other great artists and independent filmmakers!

As we’re also indie filmmakers, our main goal is to discover and to promote new talented artists and great films from all over the globe, showcasing these films to wide audiences through our website with Live Screenings in Streaming Mode every month!

Besides that, the Festival has a Professional Jury, composed with great Brazilian independent artists (filmmakers, actors and producers) that will award the best films of the month, in both main, special and individual categories.

Filmmakers may submit their projects during a period of 10 months, and the winners of each month in each category will be nominated for the “Best of the Year Awards”. So during this period, our festival will work constantly, publishing the results EVERY month on our website and social media pages! And as the Official Selection and the Winner will be selected each month, the filmmakers will know the results of the Monthly Competition really quickly.

As we look forward to have an accessible and democratic film festival, all filmmakers can submit their short, medium-length and feature films online through FilmFreeway platform. Films of all genres (except political or religious propaganda, advertising films and pornographic movies) produced within the last 5 years will be accepted in our Film Festival.
