Besides our awesome trophies, winner of the "Best Short" film will get a broadcast deal offer from ShortsTV, winners of the "Best Unproduced Screenplay" (short and feature) will get Final Draft scriptwriting software, free listings on InkTip!
All short films will be reviewed by ShortsTV executives for a chance at a cable broadcast deal on their worldwide channel, ShortsTV, which plays Oscar-winning short films. Check out our FilmFreeway profile for more info on the award categories.
