Herzlich Willkommen bei den MÜNCHEN FILM AWARDS!

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. Our film festival allows filmmakers from across the globe to push boundaries and showcase their unique voices through the shared cinematic experience.

We are very proud to be ranked as one of the Top 100 Best Reviewed Festivals on FilmFreeway. Our festival ranks in the top 1% of more than 11,000 film festivals and creative contests around the world, and we are qualified by the IMDb.

MFA’s hand-picked judging body is comprised of esteemed filmmakers and industry professionals from multiple cultural backgrounds, as we believe having different perspectives is vital in today’s diverse cinematic landscape. MFA gives independent filmmakers the special opportunity to have their films reviewed by these prestigious individuals.

At MFA, the support of independent filmmakers is our primary objective. We endeavour to promote young, talented filmmakers by exposing their works to larger audiences. In doing so, we foster a distinctive space that allows filmmakers to prosper through expert judging, unique marketing, and distribution networking. MFA acts as an event where independent filmmakers can forge fresh relationships and partnerships with fellow creatives and reach new heights together.

In 2021, our virtual event had over 800 attendees from 122 different countries, allowing filmmakers to have their works exposed to audience members from all corners of the Earth. In 2022, we plan to host a physical event alongside a virtual event, allowing even more audience members to become engaged with refreshingly novel cinema.

MFA accepts films from all genres across the globe. Every filmmaker accepted into our curated selection of films will have the opportunity to win awards, cash prizes, and more!

“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!” – Michael Davis
