The Alternative Film Festival is an IMDb-qualifying quarterly event that is committed to bringing filmmakers of all levels - even beginners - a chance at taking home a festival award. The online competition are held in March, June, September and December.
AltFF accept films in all genres. We are giving out awards in multiple categories.
Each quarter, we will give out a Best Film Award (Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter)
All other award winners will be permanently displayed in the Winners section of this site. Please note that we will not be displaying your film on our website.
As of 2021, We screen the 10 Best Film Finalists for each edition *COVID restrictions-permitting. All of the other Category Award Nominees are eligible for IMDb-approved awards.
We are the ALTERNATIVE FILM FESTIVAL - we are not your typical film awards! Our quarterly live event is different - it is an awards event where we will be announcing the winners of each of the many categories within Feature Films, Long ShortFilms, Short Films, Super Short Films, and Ultra Short Films.
