Film Threat’s Award This! Returns Sunday Evening!

Have this article read to you, listen to it like a podcast

Film Threat’s Award This! is an event with a mission — to champion independent films across diverse categories. Film Threat recognizes these indie films each year with a ceremony hosted by actors, comedians and critics. Walk the red carpet, join us for cocktails and the awards presentation itself. Meet independent filmmakers and the nominees for this years’ event.

“An awards show you can actually attend and walk the red carpet!”

Film Threat’s Award This! is the only award show where the general public may attend by simply buying a ticket. (Try getting tickets to the Oscars!) This year, Film Threat’s Award This! event includes a fundraiser for the Frida Cinema, Orange County’s only non-profit independent movie theater.

The Award This! nominees were selected from over 2,000 indie films reviewed by Film Threat in 2022/2023.

“A massively entertaining night of celebration and industry socializing.”

This years’ vastly differing nominees have battled the media, beaten the system, escaped serial killers, and survived Hollywood in the utterly unique Award This! bold and diverse categories including Indie Sci-Fi, Indie Horror, Indie Comedy, Indie LGBTQ+ Film, Indie Action/Thriller, WTF Indie, Indie Romantic Comedy, Indie Drama, Music Documentary, Pop Culture Documentary, Socially-Relevant Documentary, Best Director, Best Directress, Indie Made for Less Than the Contents of an Oscar Gift Bag (Under $100K), and Indie Movie of the Year.

We hope you join us for this very special evening!
