BLAST past all the hype, straight to a distribution deal. Isn't that why we make our films? So that the world will watch? Our festival makes that possible. A win or nomination at BLASTOFF can send your film straight to worldwide digital distribution. No hype. FACT. Look at the possibilities.
Our awards offer a real path to success in the industry, a way to reclaim some of the hard-spent dollars you invested in your film, a chance for fans to see your work on screens all over the world, and a chance to enjoy the respect and rewards you deserve for having pressed on, no doubt under sometimes incredibly difficult circumstances, chasing your dreams, and completing your film.
Over and above all of the laurels which our talented filmmakers and writers can win, the props you get when you do win, and the extended credibility you get when industry heavies notice your work, over and above all that, it's a beautiful thing knowing that people all over the world may be watching your film, some of them streaming, renting, or purchasing it.

Los Angeles award events include fun-filled screenings and awards ceremonies. International distribution awards offer a direct path to huge success in the industry.
One truly outstanding script may be selected for production ( value up to approximately $125,000 ) and worldwide distribution by the multi award-winning LunarSea ® Studios. BUT... it must be a truly outstanding script. The selected script will be made as an animated CGI film. It doesn't necessarily have to be written for animation - the last LunarSea ® production-script was written for live action, and was beautifully adapted by LunarSea ® for CGI animation.
