Films and screenplays entered into competition at The Filmshift Festival are eligible to win cash and prizes along with our Shifty Awards.
For most of our awards, feature-length and short works compete together for the same set of prizes.
We present Shifty Awards in the following categories:
Best of Festival
The Shifty Uplifty Award
Presented to films that uniquely inspire and uplift through the art of film. This award is also given to films that best exemplify the ideal that we should treat all people with respect, understanding, and compassion. (As compassionate as we are, we will award no more than 5 films in this category in order to maintain the value of the awards.)
The Shifty Lime Time Award
Presented to films or filmmakers with particularly creative or strong contributions to the “Green” and/or 10% Shift revolution. (No more than 5 films to be awarded in this category.)
Determined by the festival viewing audience’s vote and overall rating of the films.
Certificates of Merit will be given to a handful of films screened at the festival in the following categories:
- Music Video
