The World's Finest in Independent Film


The selected films will receive official nomination laurels and the top 3 films in each category will receive “Winners” laurels and certificates of achievement.

(Winners in the short films categories will also be given a guaranteed global distribution contract on Amazon Fire, Roku, Apple TV, IOS, Android, Android TV but will not include financial royalties as short films do not generate income in any way.

The Renegade Network IFN Awards is an online film competition created for the filmmakers by filmmakers. We have created a platform in which filmmakers can compete with one another at the highest level and to make sure the selected filmmakers have opportunity to distribute their works on a global stage. The festivals director Eddie Brochin has been in the television and film industry for nearly 25 years and has produced over 100 published film titles that are currently being distributed around the world. As an award winning director and producer he has kept up with the many constant and ever evolving changes in the industry market place. As a result he has become the Executive VP of Acquisitions for one of the largest film distribution companies in the US. This has given him the opportunity to help other filmmakers achieve success with their own films by signing them to global distribution platforms. This film competition is for the filmmakers period!
