The 4th annual Midlands Movies Awards is due to take place at Hansom Hall in Leicester on Saturday 14th March 2020.
With Academy Awards just a month 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’, ‘Best Director’ and many more.
We will be producing video slideshows and giving out trophies to winners. You can read more about the great selection of nominees and winners at last year's event by clicking here.
HOW FILMMAKERS CAN GET INVOLVED?
We are again looking to consider a whole range of Midlands-centric films for the 2020 Awards. Work can be submitted across 16 categories and the final nominations will be announced in February 2020 and winners announced at the ceremony in March 2020. Filmmakers will be able to submit their films at FilmFreeway from 4th November at this link - https://filmfreeway.com/MidlandsMoviesAwards2020
The Midlands Movies Awards is brought to you by a group of film fans pooling the expertise of our volunteers whilst celebrating the creativity of artists and actors, and our collective passion for the movie community in the region.
The event will again be hosted by local BBC presenter Ed Stagg. With a long background in broadcasting and event production, Ed can regularly be heard on both BBC Radio Leicester and BBC Radio Derby and Ed is also the director of Well-Bred Productions. As well as that, from Jimmy Somerville to Ed Sheeran and from Saturday morning television to BBC Three 'mockumentary', Ed's career has never been predictable but his journey with film production in the region make him the perfect host.
The Midlands Movies Awards will not happen without the assistance of our extra special supporters. Official Partners: Crosscut Media - click here for website & Firebug Bar Leicester - click here for website
