FREE BROADCAST OPPORTUNITY FOR YOUR TRAILER or Teaser on our Roku and Amazon Fire TV Channels. This is FREE PUBLICITY for your film/show to over 500,000 Subscribers. Visit: www.MetroFilmFestival.com
Metro publicizes the Festival online through our Website, Social Networking, and to our audience of nearly 1 Million on our Android TV-App, CTV Channels, and "OTT" Smart TV.
Metro operates annual award events, seasonal contests, and monthly competitions.
We started 5 years ago doing Facebook Short-Film Competitions. From these contests, we produced (2) Films that are compilations of our Winning Videos.
One of these films is our "ZombiePix" movie, distributed by Vodo.net -- it's been downloaded over 15,000 times.
Our other film is called "Best of the Fest," a 30 minute movie composed of our Winning short films. Metro continues to broadcast that movie on our Roku Channel called "Film Fest Best" and our Fire TV channel "Movies Plus TV."
Alexander Pimentel, Director of "Down River" streamed his feature film on Metro's Connected TV Channel, "Movies Plus" on Amazon Fire TV. After 6 months and 70,000 downloads, Alex shared the news with a Venture capitalist who agreed to finance Alex's next feature film. Read the article at the following link.
SCOPE OF THE FEST..........................
The Metro TV & Film Awards are International* in scope and support most every type of content from across the globe. Metro accepts Nominations and Official Submissions online.
*Sorry, Metro cannot Translate multi-language films this year. The 2019 Festival is for ENGLISH speaking submissions only.
A content's Release Window(s) is not a determining factor for consideration in the Festival. Metro aims to encourage filmmakers, rather than looking for methods of exclusion.
This year our jury will award the best independent filmmakers through private screenings and/or a point system based upon viewership on Vimeo, Youtube, and other platforms such as TV-Apps.
There are no fixed number of awards. The "Best of the Fest" (aka Best of Show) winner (2019) will receive the prestigious Metro Statuette. Other category winners may contact our team to order an Award; manufactured to order, you pay the Production and Shipping costs.
OPTIONAL DISTRIBUTION -- A METRO PLUS:
Winning filmmakers (HAVE THE OPTION) to get your content distributed through our Connected TV Channels on Roku and Amazon Fire TV. Our channels reach over 500,000 Subscribers currently, and we expect to reach over 1 Million Subscribers this year. To be clear, this is a Optional method of Distribution that we offer to you and negotiable after the Fest.
