New Ways in Entertainment and Art
During this difficult time as people around the world grapple with the outbreak of COVID-19, professionals across various industries are concerned about their careers and finding any way they can to assist others. Many countries are currently in the midst of one of the largest bouts of unemployment in history, something that will heavily affect the economy and bring the previous era of prosperity to a halt. Yet, that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything that can be done to strengthen those careers.
UNOFEX takes its position in the industry seriously and works to help keep standards high to ensure that all those who dedicate their lives to the various industries like music, film and TV, art and fashion are legitimized and recognized for their skill.
Recently UNOFEX has initiated an innovative way to support the world’s filmmakers during the COVID-19 crisis. It is clear, filmmakers and other artists have not been spared from its effects. In fact, many have been held back as releases are put on hold until the crisis is over. The UNOFEX International Film Awards 2020 is among the first online non-profit festivals to be held strictly in digital format. This means, that film submission, selection, nomination, and the award ceremony will all be completed online. UNOFEX partnered with the site FestHome which is a film submission platform where all submissions will have to be submitted.
The CEO, Deivis H. Valdes, and their panel of experts will host this year’s event free of charge with the mission to promote independent filmmakers by helping them get attention to boost their careers.
With more than 200 films submitted to the UNOFEX Awards within only one month, submission for the first edition of the UNOFEX Film Awards began on April 27, 2020 and will end on July 20, 2020. Winners will be notified on July 31, 2020, and the award ceremony will be held on August 10, 2020. There are several award categories that include the best feature film, the best short film, the best actress/actor, the best director, the best documentary, and the best music video.
