Film Festival and Awards Calendar


There are of course 100’s of film festivals around the world every year and the ones listed here are just the most famous festivals of a non-specialist nature. Some, like Sundance, focus on independent films, but I have not included anything more specific than that, for example festivals devoted to a single genre of film or to short films. Nearly all are international, whether they say that in their title or not.

Month given is for the start of the festival and if that varies from year to year then the earliest of the months has been chosen.

The awards listed are the most famous film awards in the US, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Canada, Australia and Japan.
