Digital Griffix film awards changed a bit over the years and is now an IMDB listed international online awards competition taking place each three months.

Each three months our jury determines the best films in each category. Note that we do NOT screen films online or onsite. The films are screened privately by the jury. Our goal is to help filmmakers take the next step in their career. Our jury is composed of award winning filmmakers who perfectly understand the hard work put in independent filmmaking !

Prizes will be sent each three months and will be certificates. Trophies will be offered to the best films of the year. As a VFX company, we are offering a free VFX 3D modeling package to all award winning filmmakers, which includes a 3D character (creature) or 3D model ready for production that you can choose from our 3D store. All submitters will receive a score card.

At the end of the year 2022, other prizes and trophies will be offered to the three winners of the year which include -

1-InkTip: Where producers go for scripts and writers.
