Part of the Global Film Awards Competitions, honouring filmmakers for more than 17 years, the IMPACT DOCS Awards are unique in the industry. GFA competitions attract both powerhouse industry veterans (Ridley Scott, Weinstein Company, Disney, Oscar winner Jeff Bridges,etc.) as well as talented new filmmakers. IMPACT DOCS is an exceptional, truly international awards competition, not a traditional film festival – which allows filmmakers from around the world to enter their documentaries in this prestigious competition. The IMPACT DOCS Awards are about helping industry professionals who create fresh, standout documentaries achieve the publicity and credibility they deserve.
The awards’ mission is to “support and promote filmmakers who are making a difference in the critical issues of our times through producing impactful documentaries and who are inspiring and entertaining audiences with their stories.” We are delighted to be honoured with such a prestigious award.
