About Film Craft

The A-List Hollywood FILM CRAFT AWARDS - The first event of its kind in Hollywood, the entertainment capital, to focus on the commercial advertising production and post production industry.    

Awards are presented in Best Direction, Best Production, Best Editing, Best Visual Effects and more than a dozen other categories. The event also includes a New Directors Showcase featuring the work of the industry’s most promising young talent. 

Judging will be done by a diverse group of worldwide industry experts from the advertising industries, including directors, creative directors and producers from around the world in some of the industry’s most successful commercial production companies.

THE A-LIST AWARDS strive to be a truly global awards by recognizing work from foreign countries by taking into account each cultures unique communication. Additional categories can be entered base on country or region.  If entry is submitted in a related category base on country or region, judges will also factor in culture and communication. So depending on which categories were entered a trophy could be awarded in a category representing the best from that region of the world.

If any category entries do not meet the standard deemed award worthy by the judges, it’s possible that there will be no awards given in that category. Equally, if in any category an entry meets the silver standard but not the gold standard, it is possible that there will only be a silver award given in a category.
