The Maverick Movie Awards

5 Annual September 14, 2013 to September 15, 2013
    MISSION STATEMENT
The Maverick Movie Awards was founded by moviemakers who have been through the glorious highs and crushing lows of the international film festival circuit; from these shared experiences came the calling to create a real alternative to the nepotism, politics, and commercialism that defines far too many festivals and competitions.

Our goal is to help talented moviemakers achieve the recognition they deserve by awarding movies with unique style, exceptional craft, and the power to communicate.

By championing great movies – regardless of origin, genre, or budget – our hope is to re-ignite the spirit of the major film festivals and distribution pioneers by celebrating great cinema above glitz and glamour.



    MAVERICK MOVIE AWARDS SUMMARY
The Maverick Movie Awards exists to honor all facets of moviemaking form, function, style, and craft. A level playing-field where a movie’s lack or excess of a budget is immaterial, its absence or abundance of star power is inconsequential, and its humble or lofty origins are irrelevant, any and all independent, underground, student, and studio films are eligible to receive a Maverick Award.

Celebrating narratives, documentaries, experimental films, and the vast diversity of moving pictures expression, the MMA has recognized everything from big-budget pictures to low-budget indies, global issue documentaries, screwball comedies, computer-animated movies, action-horror flicks, video art, microcinema, music videos, webisodes, and everything in-between. Each movie’s successful execution of intent as a whole, on its own terms, is considered first and then the quality of its parts. So in addition to standard award categories like Best Picture and Best Director, the MMA prides itself on saluting oft overlooked disciplines, including stunts, special effects makeup, original music, and more.

Except for advertising and industrial work, all motion picture creators are encouraged to submit. As a cooperative of moviemakers honoring moviemakers with no theater or online screening events, the MMA will not jeopardize premiere status for any other competition or festival submission.



    MORE ABOUT US
The Maverick Movie Awards’ founders and judges are all entertainment industry insiders and outsiders (not mere academics, critics, fans, or dabblers) with backgrounds as varied as our work. In fact, everyone involved in the MMA’s judging process has been a collaborator on a theatrically-released movie, a television or video release, or a top-ten film fest official selection.

But we’re not telling you who we are. No siree! We must maintain our secret identities in order to preserve the integrity of our judging process. The self-interest we will cop to is the need to protect the careers we’ve built in the ‘small, small world’ known as the entertainment industry and a desire to avoid retaliation on the World Wide Web from those whose work we “fail” to recognize.

And if those aren’t good enough reasons for you then please consider that, unlike far too many film festivals and competitions, we are NOT doing this for our greater glory. We do what we do at the Maverick Movie Awards for our fellow moviemakers; these talented folks are the ones with the names to know.
