About The US International Film & Video Festival


Founded in 1967
US International Film & Video Festival, founded in 1967 and headquartered in Los Angeles,  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.  Entries invited include film, online, apps, digital, video games, broadcast and interactive.

What 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. Winning Student entries receive a Student Certificate.

‘Best of Festival’ (Grand Prix) Award
Each year, "Best of Festival"  awards are presented to an outstanding entry from among the Gold Camera winners in the main production types.  These winners are selected by a panel from 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.

Awards Presentations
Historically, awards were presented each June during an Awards Gala in Los Angeles. For the past several years, award presentations have been held in the countries of our top winners. Other seminars and workshops are also held.
