Welcome to GMFA

GMFA is an Awards Ceremony which takes place annually online globally. The ceremony is open to filmmakers who shoot their films with only mobile phones and who have won official awards at ANY film festival or film/video contest. Any mobile or non-mobile Film Festival may sponsor a nomination for a filmmaker who shot their film using only smartphones if the film won an official award in their festival by submitting the awarded film to GMFA.

Filmmakers may also submit their film for a nomination to GMFA on their own. If the film festival where you won your award submits the nomination for you, they will pay your submission fee and may receive promotion by nominating your film.
