Highlights

Audience Awards Film Festival​ wrapped Sunday April 9th, 2017, with unprecedented success. We are so proud of producing such quality screenings, panels, workshops and networking opportunities for Audience Awards’ online community of filmmakers.

Check out our Facebook page for a look at AudFest 2017’s Family Reunion Photo Albums!

We gave away over $150,000 in cash and prizes to our filmmaker community. Videomaker gave subscriptions for all 200 filmmakers who submitted to our Women’s Film Challenge ($4,000 value) and Final Draft gave software packages to the top 10 WFC winners and as door prizes to five filmmakers who attended the “Empire” writing panel.
