Mission / description Ocean of Motion Short Film Awards, based in London, UK, is born out of a desire to create a platform where beauties in international cinema can be professionally appreciated and awarded. We believe quality film-making should be celebrated and awarded.

Film-making is not an individual work, but rather a teamwork, so we believe different categories behind which a film is made should be appreciated and awarded. For the first edition, we have decided to give awards in 10 categories.

We are an actual competition for true filmmakers and artists and great goals stand behind our intentions to start the awards platform on our first edition. Merely submitting a movie or a few for consideration to the Ocean of Motion Short Film Awards will not guarantee a nomination, let alone an award. Please submit your movie with confidence knowing it will be treated with the great respect and attention. We not only watch every single submission, we critically and professionally examine it.

What we are eager to see is films and works of art made with magnificent understanding of the seventh art (cinema) and a marvelous approach to modern storytelling. We will dance on the ground you break for sure and review your works with great pride and glory.

Please note each submission from amateur films to professionally made films, traditional or modern films, children or adult films, even works by young artists, have a great chance in our festival and we're most eager to watch, review and select them. All you have to do is trust yourself to be watched, heard and recognized! Ocean of Motion Short Film Awards is surely your place! Don't miss your chance!

The movies will only be considered for awards and will not be shared or screened for any live screenings or in any event. Should there be a live screening, the permission of the filmmakers will be asked.

We are accepting submissions for 10 categories and are open to all languages, as long as films in a language other than English are subtitled in English. All submissions must come through FilmFreeway. To read more about categories, please refer to rules and regulations.

The festival will announce 20 selected works in each category. Four Nominees in each category will be announced and later on, the winners. All the selected films will receive digital certificate of participation. The nominees receives paper certificates by post. The winner in each category receive the certificate of prize and the "Deer Trophy" of the festival in beautiful special box.
