Festival start: 14 January 2022      Festival end: 15 January 2022

We welcome you to the Third Edition of Prague Film Awards - a two-day celebration of quality independent filmmaking, awards, and industry events in front of a live audience of film critics, enthusiasts and producers. Join us for two memorable nights of screenings, networking and red-carpet treatment.

Prague Film Awards, now in its second edition, was born out of a desire to create a welcoming space where international cinema and Czech filmmaking can meet and enrich each other. After our hugely successful, sold-out first edition in January 2018 and January 2019, we will be returning to Kino Atlas in Prague, January 2021.

We believe quality filmmaking should be celebrated and awarded, regardless of the budget. This is why our dedicated team of international programmers focus on creating the most diverse screening selection. Why our nominated filmmakers are guests of honor. Why seeing and hearing the audience react to your cinematic work is just one of the many ways your work is being rewarded.

We are passionate about supporting up-and-coming directors, producers and actors, and providing them with worthwhile, memorable screening experiences. These include Q&As with filmmakers, industry roundtables, and audience awards.

▶ We are accepting submissions for a number of categories and are open to all languages, as long as films in a language other than English are subtitled in English. All submissions must come through Festhome ◀

Prague Film Awards is run in association with Close:Up, a collection of international film festivals supporting indie filmmaking. By establishing a working network among filmmakers, producers and marketing professionals, we share one common goal: to forge productive and lasting relationships between independent filmmakers and audiences.

We are now open for submissions for our 2021 event!

→ Prague Film Awards are proud to announce that we will be offering a range of prizes, including distribution packages, discounts and waivers for other film festivals, among other treats.

→ In addition to this, all winners will receive award certificates and invitations for online distribution deals.

→ All nominated films will receive official laurels.

★ All films must be submitted in English or with English subtitles.

★ Filmmakers are responsible for sorting out the copyright on their own materials.

★All films must have been made in or after 2019.

★ Short films must not exceed 30 minutes.

★ By submitting to us, you give us the right to screen your film in front of a live audience at KINO ATLAS.

★ Nominations: All films nominated in any category.
Official Selection: Films selected for screening will be notified via email. If you received a Nomination email, but no Official Selection email, it means your film will not be screened, but is still a contender for an award in its category.
Award Winners: Chosen from both the Nominations and the Official Selection.

★ We may promote clips from your film on social media, based on the press kits you provide us with.

★ We retain the right to change the date and venue of the festival under special circumstances. All filmmakers will be informed about any changes through our online platforms.

★ We place no restrictions on your work in terms of premiere status or whether your work has been made available online.

★ Any technical issues with the submitted films are 100% the responsibility of the filmmakers. If, at the time of judging, your video file doesn’t work or doesn’t have English subtitles (if in a language other than English), it will be automatically rejected, without a refund. Please contact the festival team ASAP if there are any issues with the submission process, and a solution will be found.

★ We cannot provide refunds.

★ If you have submitted your project in the previous year, please do not resubmit the same project to current edition.
