Welcome to the

Santiago Independent Film Awards!

The Santiago Independent Film Awards (SIFA) is an online film monthly competition that allows filmmakers from around the world to present own work that will be evaluated by a jury composed of professionals in the industry, in order to compete with the other works and win the grand prize.

The SIFA is structured as follows:

• Each month, our jury selects the winners through private screenings for each category. After that we publish the winners list and we notify filmmakers by e-mail. Only the monthly winners (finalists) for each category will also compete for the annual competition.
• Annual competition.
• Once a year, in June, our jury will decide the best films of the year (one per category)
