The Union of Excellence International Film Awards (UNOFEX Awards 2020) is a semi annual, online film competition recognizing excellence in filmmaking worldwide.

As an organization and network, the UNOFEX unites an exceptional community of accredited and award winning professionals worldwide working within the film & TV, Art and Entertainment industry. Over the years we have accredited hundreds of members who achieved our UNOFEX Standards of Excellence. 

The UNOFEX (Union of Excellence) International Film Awards was initiated in 2020 during the global outbreak of the coronavirus in order to support filmmakers worldwide.  Therefore our UNOFEX panel of experts and CEO Deivis H. Valdes decided to hold this year's 2020 edition completely free of charge as a non profit festival. The entire process, from film submission to nomination and the final award ceremony, is handled completely digitally. For this we partnered with the FestHome Film Submission platform as the only provider to handle film submissions digitally.

Our mission within the UNOFEX International Film Awards is to promote excellence in filmmaking, and be a substantial catalyst in the filmmakers' careers. Every half year, our Jury will award the best in film through private screenings, and make a special interview with the winner of the UNOFEX Awards. 

You can submit your film via Festhome. Submissions start is 27 April 2020, Submission Deadline is 20 July 2020.

The UNOFEX Awards is a pro listed Festival on Festhome.
