The 3rd annual Midlands Movies Awards is due to take place at Hansom Hall in Leicester on Saturday 3rd March 2019.
With the Academy Awards just a week before, these Midlands 'Oscars' will be a platform to honour the local films released in the past 12 months – whether they be shorts, features, animation, documentaries and more. We will be rewarding the region’s talent in categories such as ‘Best Picture’, ‘Best Actor / Actress’ & many more.
We are again looking to consider a whole range of Midlands-centric films for the 2019 Awards. Work can be submitted across 16 categories and the Kickstarter campaign runs until November (click here)
