Season Awards

The Lift-Off Season Awards is an annual event which celebrates the very best of indie film. Following each Lift-Off film festival, films which have excelled in their respective category are nominated and invited to attend the prestigious Lift-Off Season Awards, culminating at the end of the Lift-Off season.

Each year the Lift-Off Global Network of film festivals screen hundreds of incredible films from a diverse range of artists with huge talent that deserves recognition. Throughout the year, we aim to seek out the very best of this pool of talent and give those filmmakers the recognition they deserve.

Based at the prestigious Pinewood Studios in the UK, the Lift-Off Season Awards is a night comprising of an awards ceremony, product demonstrations, drinking, and dancing. Each year we see hundreds of filmmakers from all over the world attending the event to network and celebrate their peers.


The Trophy

A work of art combining technology and creativity.

The Lift-Off Trophy is a truly one of its kind embodiment of creativity and technology – ‘The essence of true indie cinema’.

3D Printed using a mixture of resins that have been combined with wood and lead – mounted onto reclaimed black marble stone, the trophy has a distinct finish, a heavy-weight, and a fabulous pixelated globe – giving the trophy a retro and modern feel at the same time.

Created by iMakr and designed to such a high quality this trophy truly is a work of art to be cherished – representing global excellence with an independent spirit.
