Munich Film Awards (MFA) is a fresh face in the illustrious film festival culture of Germany. Hosted in the heart of Munich, MFA strives to redefine what a film festival can be by creating a stimulating environment where creativity, originality, and inspiration take centre stage…
The judges of the festival will carefully select the films to be nominated for awards, and create a selection of nominated films to be screened in front of the live audience. The fantastic event will give filmmakers opportunities to watch their film on the big screen and be invited to a live Q&A session. We provide cash prizes, subscriptions, physical trophies, certificates, networking booklets, festival memorabilia and many more.
At MFA events we try to put our own spin on the well established Film Festival format. We focus on our events being networking opportunities and we offer resources to help filmmakers enhance their craft.
Nice festival and great team.
A stellar festival and with stellar programmers.
It’s great honour for you to choose my film as the best feature. Even if I couldn’t make it by myself at the screening, I felt a warm respect to the film and me as a director from the head staffs of the MFA. I do appreciate it.
A truly wonderful experience! Harry and the rest of the team at the Munich Film Awards have created an inspiring and positive atmosphere for filmmakers. A true joy to see such amazing work and talent. Cannot wait to see what the next year brings!
Overall a great festival. Happy to have won Best Screenplay this year. The communication with the team was very good. I can recommend this festival to everybody.
I was blown away to find out I won this top award from the MFA. Being recognized among some of the world’s most talented artists is such an honor. The competition this year in all categories was incredible and I still can’t believe I won the Overall Best Soundtrack. It’s a day that I’ll never forget – thank you MFA!” ~ Munich Film Awards.
Great film festival. Covid made it not what it could have been, but that's of no fault of the FF. The online version of the FF was the best under these circumstances. Thank you so much.
A really interesting and recommendable festival. Thank you that we had the chance to be part of it this year. I hope that we have the chance to network in person next year.
Munich Film Awards is a great festival. They are awesome, friendly and very communicative. They judge the submitted film very carefully and patronize the participants. I strongly recommend this festival. Best wishes for Munich Film Awards.
The Munich Film Awards managed to put together a wonderful festival in very difficult circumstances given the pandemic and multiple lockdowns across Europe. The virtual format and the global nature of the competition made it a great success. The organisers were communicative and highly professional and I would recommend both experienced and junior filmmakers to consider submitting their features to MFA. It's a programme that will continue to put Munich on the film map." Dan McDougall. Director. Film Maker. Writer.
It has been an absolute honor to have our feature documentary Le Champion win the Munich Film Awards...we look forward to when the travel restrictions are lifted, so we can attend the festival in person.
A great festival that has not given in to the COVID crisis. The organizers had a lot of courage to organize this event and to make it very pleasant for the participants and the spectators. A big thank you to them!
The Munich Film awards are a great festival that I would definitely recommend!
Thank you for this great Festival, for the great Jury and the fantastic communication! Hopefully next year the Festival can take place not only virtual, but in a real cinema in Munich.
It an honor to be involved in this Fes. Great Festival with excellent communication and awesome winter packs. Will attend again.
Super nice festival! Thanks for the great communication and the award for BuildingBridges.
Great Festival with excellent communication! Will attend again.
LILLIAN was honored to be a part of this festival. There was good communication (even in these dark pandemic times) and clear instructions to follow. We were super excited to WIN the coveted BEST PRODUCER award and hope we will be able to attend the festival F2F in 2021!!!
Great Festival. Great Communication. Awesome!

Thank you so much, Juan and Toni Giménez Cerezo (GimEnez Bros.) www.gimenezbros.com
We were really grateful to participate on this year festival! All the staff was very attentive, kind and helpful through the whole process. Congratulations you guys for the resilience to overcome the new challenges that appeared in this period and make a great event!
This was a wonderful festival to be apart of. Our writer was able to go and represent the film and was very pleased with the program. The festival coordinators were incredibly professional and responsive. We would be thrilled to take part in this festival again and we see the Munich Film Awards as having a bright future for filmmakers and movie goers alike.
Munich Film Awards is one of my favourite new festivals. They were attentive, detailed, thoughtful, awesome, friendly, communicative. I really look forward to next year and will definitely be taking another film there.
Our team has had the opportunity to be a part of over 100 festivals and the Munich Film Awards is one of the best experiences I have had in my career! I was sadly unable to attend the live event, but still received an amazing package with a trophy, festival memorabilia, and a networking booklet containing the emails of every talented filmmaker involved with the festival! The networking booklet is an ingenious idea and I can't believe more festivals aren't doing it. I've already been able to make some connections and new contacts using the book. There is a real sense of community created between the fellow filmmakers and the entire festival team. The staff is extremely kind, timely with information and notification dates, and truly care about your film and your experience at the festival. Munich Film Awards is something special, I CAN'T RECOMMEND IT ENOUGH! Our entire team is thrilled you loved our short film Hindsight and we're honored to have been a part of the event. I can't wait to submit again in the near future!
Munich Films Awards is not just a festival. It is the opportunity for filmmakers around the world to show their creations and connect with other filmmakers, wich is, I think, most important. I had the opportunity to know (via e-mail) other filmmakers who liked my work presented at the festival and with whom I keep in contact for future projects, which means that I probably travel to Munich to work with them. It is the first time that a festival gives me a value of that size. The communication with people of the festival could not be better. Every time I had a question they answered inmediately. Amazing experience.
Very nice festival and great networking! Thanks!
A great festival especially for a 1st year running. Very organised and super quick in communication. My documentary 'Against All Odds' won Best Student Documentary which I am very proud of. They sent me a networking book for every film at the festival with their Director's contact details which should be very useful. The award arrived very quickly and overall I would easily give the whole festival 10/10 for everything. Thank you again for viewing and selecting my film for the award, I am hoping to apply with a new film next year.
Although I wasn't able to make the festival, the communication and support could not have been better. Thank you to the whole team at Munich Film Awards for recognising 'My Week with Maisy' and your continued support for Indie Film! *****
I had a really great time and the staff were absolutely lovely with everyone! Moreover it was such an honour for my film to be screened there! Thank you Munich Film Award!
The festival organizers were very communicative. Very helpful. This festival is very interested in promoting its filmmakers and screenwriters. They want to help you to succeed.
This is a fantastic film festival that gave me the opportunity to reach my full potential. I always write music for films so that viewers have no questions about what needs to be removed / added to the music. I hope everyone really liked my soundtrack. I want to say only one thing: a genius, this is 1 percent of talent and 99 percent of work.
This is the first festival we've ever been where they value the networking chances and communication so much they even create a pdf introducing everyone and their projects. That is awesome. They are caring, communicative and keep you up to date with every stage.
Thanks Munich Film Awards so very much for your support of our film, "As the Earth Turns". We are humbled and honored by the Best Feature award! You did a wonderful job of handling all of the details coming up to the festival, and were great to work with. Good luck on next year!
A great festival with friendly staff. There was an impressive selection of films and for a small festival they really punched above their weight. I was fortunate enough to win Best Short Film for my film Free Therapy. I will definitely be coming back next year.
