About the Festival
US International Film & Video Festival has been in operation since 1967. The Festival offers five mini-competitions in one by recognizing outstanding Corporate, Education, Entertainment, Documentary and Student productions. Entries are judged against peers, meaning Corporate competes with Corporate, Education against Education, and so on.
What Else Sets Us Apart
Judges do not have to grant awards in each category. As a result, the top award in a category is not necessarily a Gold Camera, but may be a Silver or Certificate winner. Conversely, more than one Gold, Silver or Certificate may be presented in a category. Decisions are made based on both effectiveness and creativity by judges located around the world.
- First-Place Gold Camera Statuette
- Second-Place Silver Screen Statuette
- Third-Place Certificate for Creative Excellence
- Student Award Certificate
- Best of Festival (Grand Prix) Awards
Presented to an outstanding entry from among the Gold Camera winners in each production type. These winners are selected by members of the International Quorum of Motion Picture Producers (IQ), a global peer network of production company owners.
- One World Award
Honors a production that demonstrates international cooperation and global understanding. The Award is sponsored and presented by the International Quorum of Motion Picture Producers (IQ), which seeks to support and improve international communications. Established in 1966, IQ is headquartered in New York City. See iqfilm.org.
Winners are announce in June.
