The Lift-Off Season Awards 2015 will take place in mid December.

The Festival does not offer fee waivers, discounts, invitations to become an Official Selection, or any other form of preferential treatment that Festival directors feel would be out of step with the Festival's mission of providing a level playing field.
Which festivals am I submitting to?
All 10. One submission counts as multiple submissions to all of our festivals.
Can I win at more than one festival?
No you can't win more than one. As the prize is being nominated in our end of season awards, each script can only be nominated once.
If I submit after the date of one of the festivals am I only considered now for three?
No, you will always be considered for each city per submission, 10 in total. For example if you submit in August 2015, you will be considered first for Los Angeles, Amsterdam and London in 2015 and then for the next Liverpool Lift-Off Film Festival in 2016.
Founded in 2010 the Lift-Off Film Festival Global Network are a transatlantic initiative to give exposure and oppotunity to filmmakers and screenwriters whose work wouldn’t normally be picked up by a film festival. Staying true to our motto: “Look beyond the gloss”, Lift-Off has shown films and celebrated scripts from artists the world over.
Festivals are held throughout the year between London, Liverpool, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Amsterdam, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Vancouver, Singapore and Sydney
