Midlands Movies Awards 2017


To tie in with the Oscars this year we would like to announce our plans for the online Midlands Movies 2017 Film Awards.


With so much talent in the region we hope to launch these web-based Midlands 'Oscars' as a platform to honour the local films released in the past 12 months – whether they be shorts, features, animation, documentaries and more.


We are looking for extra nominations to our own suggestions - your own film or any others' films that have struck a chord - and we hope that this could be the start of a more formal awards event in future.


The categories (mostly) parallel the Oscar categories for this inaugural Awards so please see below for clarification. With regards to shorts/features then, unless stated, films of any length will be eligible for all categories.


So please email at midlandsmovies@yahoo.com or contact us via Twitter or Facebook with your suggestions.


* Your submissions/nominations are FREE and are in addition to the choices identified by the jury

* There's no limit to the number of categories a film can be nominated in

* Deadline for submissions/nominations is MONDAY 20th FEBRUARY (one week before the Academy Awards)

* An online screener of the film is preferred

* Films must have a significant connection to the Midlands region in writing, acting, directing or location.

* There's no limitations on your film being shown in other festivals - however, we are identifying films based upon the fact that the full version of it must have been shown to the public (at a red carpet event, general release or online in any form) from Feb 2016 to Feb 2017.

* Final winners are decided by a jury made up from writers who have contributed to Midlands Movies in the past 12 months

* The winners will receive a PDF/JPEG Certificate to print


MIdlands Movies feels this is a great way to showcase the best of what was released in the region last year.


Thanks in advance and we look forward to hearing from you.


Mike Sales

Editor, Midlands Movies.
