“Morituri” (Short Film) – Writer/Director/Producer, FR
We were so pleased our movie “Morituri” got awarded the Best Actress award, as well as Grand Jury Prize for Best First-Time Filmmaker !
The Oniros Team is easy to talk to, answers quickly whenever you have a question. And the Jury has apparently pretty good taste 😉
It was a wonderful experience to send our Film to this Festival, and I’d recommend it to anyone !
“About“ (Short Film) – Writer/Director/Producer, UK
We were so pleased our film “About” was awarded Best Cinematography and was a finalist for Best Indie Short this January! These guys run a great online monthly awards event, with clear communication, strong online/social presence, snappy laurels and a lovely bespoke certificate for the winners. They even went the extra mile when we enquired about a small change to our certificate and turned it around in minutes! Really recommend submitting
“Sydney Sleuthers“ (Web-Series) – Writer/Director/Producer, AU
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the monthly aspect to this festival. So often we wait months to find out how our films are received but I like the monthly awards all building to the Gala Awards in August. The crew behind the festival have been kind, supportive and their communication is great, especially regarding updates. Thank you Oniros Team!
“Chasing my friend, Mr. Cormorant“ (Documentary Short) – Director/Voice Over Artist, USA
By far the best festival I have ever competed in, and I have tried a few. Just so happened I had not tried the Oniros until this monthly round. So very happy I won an award. I have one more production up my sleeve before filming season begins next month. I hope to be back on the charts and maybe their annual event. Super professional folks with great attention to detail and many awesome categories with a chance to shine at.
“The Keeper“ (Short Film) – Director/Actor, USA
I have submitted to this festival over the past couple of years with two different projects. I am struck by there consistent professionalism and communication. I am honored to have been both a finalist and winner in the past, as their lineup of films is strong and diverse. If it’s not on your radar it should be
“Tennessee Whiskey Girl” (Music Video) – Singer/ Songwriter, IT
One of the best experience of my entire life. I really felt like I was in Hollywood! Very well organized and professional. They’re all very nice. Another level from every Italian festival I’ve been to, Oniros really know how to treat artists and guests.
“The Accompanist” (Feature Film) – Director, USA
OFA is a tremendous IMDb-qualifying festival that has given a BIG boost to my feature film THE ACCOMPANIST during our festival awards season in the second half of 2019. It’s nice to see a festival that judges films on their ARTISTIC AND TECHNICAL MERIT and not which “star” or “known actor” is in it. My film has some experienced actors in it, but because it has a lot of professional-level dancing in it there are some dancers turned actors. Either way, I believe Oniros Film Awards gives those deserving of recognition their due, and not invested in film festival “politics.”
“GPS” (Series Pilot) – Producer, ES
The best film festival you could dream of is this one! We just came back yesterday after spending Saturday watching the screening of some of the Best of Year nominees and then the red carpet event in the evening. It was like a European Oscar ceremony, with a Talent Show mixed in with the winners. Alice Lussiana as Master of Ceremony and Roberto Accornero were top class and made me feel so welcome from the beginning to the end…when I heard my name called as the Best Producer of the Year Award and walked up to the stage with wobbly knees from the surprise!! The trophy is beautiful and HEAVY…it’s the Real Deal! Thank you to the whole Oniros team and especially Charles for the warm welcome and all those emails!!
“Adam’s Apples” (Feature Film) – Producer, USA
Adams’ Apples cast and crew has been thrilled with the recognition received from the Oniros Film Awards including wins in three categories and four finalist nominations. The Oniros team is very responsive, enthusiastic and professional. I am very impressed with their wonderful support of independent filmmakers. Thank you Oniros!
“Creeping Out” (Feature Film) – Director, PL
Being a part of Oniros Film Awards is extremely big pleasure! We are excited and honored that we have received 5 wins for our independent horror movie! Oniros Film Awards is very kind, communication was excellent and the Oniros Team is awesome! Thank you so much.
“Cancer” (Web-Series) – Director, USA
Exceptionally outstanding film festival. Just the look of it is so mesmerizing – looks like Oscars. Great communication. Really great people. If you are a dreamer, this is the festival for you. I highly recommend this film festival unequivocally without any reservations. Thank you for selecting TV pilot Cancer as a Finalist for the month for the December 2019. I feel so humbled and so honored. Never visited Italy. Hope to visit Italy some day. I will definitely submit my future works to Oniros and they will be better. Thank you again for making my debut work as an actor, as a screenwriter/director/casting director and as a producer, a part of your very, very amazing, prestigious film festival. Thank you very, very much!

We are so proud and thankful to be part of the Monthly Honorable Mentions with our short film Tales of a Falling Man. A great honor, a great pleasure and – obviously – a great opportunity! Hope for the future, hope for the Annuals!
Thank you all, OFA!
Wonderful film festival. Great communication and it’s clear Oniros has a wonderful passion for great filmmaking. I had two films in this year, PASTALIGHT, and THE TREE OF ART, to honor my late father. We picked up a bunch of awards and my team, and my family, who all worked on the films, are eternally grateful. I know my father is looking down at us very proud. Thank you Oniros for bringing us so much joy this year.

“Namibia” (Documentary) – Director, FR
I was pleased to see that my film “Namibia” was treated like all the other films presented, that the Oniros team took the time to watch it despite the amateur context in which it was made (budget of 2400 $). I also appreciated the follow-up and the quality of the exchanges I had with the team. “Namibia” won 2 awards at the Oniros festival and I’m delighted about it. Thank you to the festival team and congratulations for your energy and enthusiasm!

“En Garde!” (Short Film) – Director, LTU
Such a great experience to be showcased in ONIROS FILM AWARDS. Highly recommend to every filmmaker, especially independent. Very good communication, attention to detail, highly professional team. The ability to enter many film genres and subcategories is the key point, in addition to social media promotions, IMDb mentions and certificates – all this leads to success and helps promote your film. 5 Starts out of 5! Grazie mile!

Anna Terenteva ★★★★★
“Taste of Night” (Music Video) – Assistant Director, RU
One of the best film festivals if not the best we participated till now. Level of presentation of submitted films is extraordinary. They have wonderful site promoting submitted films. Social media is definitely working well with a frequent updates. There are several levels that define choice and they are always in time. You never have to worry if your film was received or else every step is shown through Facebook. Thus it is possible see posters of all submitted films and see your competitors from the beginning. The site is definitely positive and informative. If there are any questions or doubts it is always possible to ask organizators and have your answer in several minutes. We did not yet had the possibilities to be present at live screenings but seeing such an organizational level in everyday life we are sure it should be top level. The festival is definitely worth the entrance fee. We will for sure submit again.

“Filling In” (Series Pilot) – Director, USA
The Oniros Film Awards have proven to my team and I on the comedy-fantasy ‘Filling In’ to be one of the very best organized and communicative film fests we’ve ever had the honor of having a film of ours selected for. We especially appreciated the quick responses to any questions that we had, and the incredible job that they do with updating all of their social media platforms with class and style. The laurels that OFA provides at every level (official selection, finalist, and winner) for the selected films are all first rate, and the variety of formats provided of the laurels made it super easy for us to quickly use them on our production stills and graphics created for ‘Filling In’ on our own social media platforms. I also love how this fest sticks to its notification dates and announcements at every step of the way. This is especially impressive when one takes into consideration that they are handling 12 major categories and several additional categories each and every month! We were so very honored to have ‘Filling In’ declared by OFA as the Best Series Pilot and Best Comedy for July of 2017, and I look forward to submitting other films and projects to OFA again in the near future.

They are very dedicated to what they do and Its very easy to see their passion for what they do.
