The Nevada International Film Festival
The Nevada International Film Festival is the Silver State’s annual celebration of the very best in American and international cinema, recognizing and awarding top independent filmmakers and the storytellers who make it all possible.
This year's festival will recognize excellence in filmmaking in several competition categories including feature films, documentaries, short films, foreign films, animations, music videos, experimental films, and a screenplay competition. Films of many genres will be honored including drama, comedy, action, horror, family and more. At NIFF, films are awarded solely on the basis of their merits, with an eye for great screenwriting, originality and storytelling.
The Nevada International Film Festival is a non-traditional film festival and awards competition created as a platform to provide worthy films and filmmakers with recognition for their filmmaking and screenwriting achievements. As of our 2015 event, we have transitioned from a traditional live film festival held each year in Las Vegas, to an annual online awards competition. Films are not screened for the public. Once the Judges have concluded the judging process, winners are announced publicly on our official website and through various promotional channels targeting the film industry.
The Nevada International Film Festival proudly supports the craft of screenwriting by discovering and recognizing important new talent through our annual Screenplay Competition. Top screenplays in several genres and categories, including feature and short length narrative scripts, specs scripts, and television pilots are recognized based on originality, form, and overall quality of work.
We are now accepting film and screenplay submissions via FilmFreeway.
