The iF3 Movie Awards are a unique event with a gala held in Montreal, Canada. Our international jury panel reviews all the movies prior to the Festival in order for the awards to be announced and given at the Festival in Montreal.


Submissions Criterias

PRO CATEGORY

iF3 has invited specific production companies to submit their films to the professional category. Additional production companies are welcome to submit their films to compete in this segment. However, they will be judged on the same level as professionally made films. While we do not have specific requirements regarding what qualifies as a professional production company, the following guidelines may help classify a professional crew:

  • Professionally Sponsored Athletes
  • Significant external funding and sponsorship
  • Professional cinematographers
  • Professional editing
  • The revenue and sponsorship income are sufficient to financially support the parties involved
  • The production company is run as a business

If you believe you can compete on a professional level, you are free to submit your entry in this category. The iF3 reserves the rights to change any entry from one category to another once it has reviewed its submission.
