Film Craft Lions

The Film Craft Lions celebrate onscreen artistry.

Entries will need to demonstrate exceptional filmmaking; work in which technical skill and prowess in production / post production elevates an idea or dramatically enhances its execution.

Criteria considered during judging will predominantly be the execution. There is no overall limit to how many times the same piece of work can be entered into Film Craft.

Each execution constitutes one entry and all executions must have run within the eligiblity period.
