Prizes and Competition

If you are a Christian filmmaker, then even better news for you. There is a $10,000.00 "Best of Film Festival" Jubilee Award given for the best Independent Christian Film Short. Gone are the days of old when you needed tens of thousands of dollars to create films. In fact, the equipment is cheap enough that a single individual is capable of funding a project. There are many factors taken into account for the awards including theological accuracy, production value, quality, and level of difficulty. A few of the other several awards being given is Best Commercial Advertisement, Best Documentary Short, and Best Feature Film.
