About Us

Ace Film Festival functions as an independent online awards event. Submissions are reviewed, graded privately and not screened in public; though in the future if we grow, perhaps public screenings, virtual or in person will occur. In the meantime, we will not in any way display your materials, except for a poster, screenshot, and/or trailer posted on our website or social media accounts, because we do not want to jeopardize your premier and/or distribution status.

We comprehend some festivals have a selective range in taste and play it close to the vest, making it hard to swim in a contest, when you can’t see what’s in the water. At this festival we have a very broad range of taste: Action, Adventure, Animation, Avant-Garde, Claymation, Comedy, Crime, Dance, Drama, Dramedy, Documentary, Drone Media, Environmental, Epic, Experimental, Faith-Based, Family, Fantasy, Historical, Horror, Musical, Mystery, Noir, Romantic Comedy, Science-Fiction, Stop-Motion, Suspense, Thriller, War, Western, or Wildlife.

Making any movie is a challenge and we want to help your film with the notoriety and accolades you and your film deserve.

And let's not forget
