ROSWELL, GA, USA, June 16, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Southern Shorts Awards are quite simply the best short film festival on the planet.

The objective of the Southern Shorts Award is to recognize filmmakers whose short films demonstrate their ability to produce well-crafted films.

What sets us apart from thousands of other festivals is that ours is made by filmmakers for filmmakers.

“I started this film festival out of frustration with other festivals because there were rarely any comments or extra fees to receive it. So I organized a workshop to help the screenwriters refine their screenplays. The filmmakers have need the same type of criticism, that’s why we send each of us his score sheet Improvement starts with evaluation.
Stephen P. Sherwood – SSA Festival Creator/Director

The Southern Shorts Awards are a quarterly competition in which each entry is judged on its merits. Each film is screened by three judges on a 10-point scale, and filmmakers receive scores from all three judges whether or not they win an award. We are the only film festival to do so. Their composite score shows where they excelled and areas that could improve. We believe this is vitally important information, because how can they improve if they don’t know what needs to be improved?

The Southern Shorts Awards provide a level playing field for filmmakers to have their work judged by a panel of three industry professionals. Our judges have either a page on IMDb or equivalent experience in video/film production. Scoring is based on the judge’s score plus nine criteria: originality, screenplay, direction, acting, cinematography, sound design, editing, music, and production design.

Individual Achievement Awards can be given to a film, cast and crew, whether that film makes it into the festival or not. Additionally, Merit Awards are given to short films that prove basic cinematic skill, Excellence Awards are given to films that exhibit higher levels of creativity and ability, and Distinction Awards are given. to professional quality films.

Another objective of the Southern Shorts Awards is to elevate the quality of short films by providing professional reference. SSA is an excellent first-entry test for filmmakers who intend to submit their short films to festivals. Receiving an award from us does not guarantee that other festivals will accept their application, but films that do not receive an award from us may have less chance of succeeding on the festival circuit.

We are also unique in that we rate individual achievements at no additional cost. Additionally, all major cast and crew members are rated on the same 10-point scale by each judge; individuals may receive an award even if the film does not.
