Celebrating the best of brand storytelling throughout EMEA.
Brand Film Awards will be returning to London for its fourth year to celebrate the best of brand storytelling throughout EMEA.

If you think you’ve mastered the art of brand storytelling, submit your best brand films today. This is your opportunity to gain exposure from throughout the EMEA region and be awarded the best in the industry.

Supported by industry leading brands PRWeek and Campaign, the Awards will host an evening cinematic showcase on the 29 April at The Courthouse Shoreditch, where we will award the best in the industry. 

About the Awards
As it becomes harder to reach audiences through traditional media, innovative brands and agencies are transforming the marketing business with the use of brand films. A branded content film begins with an exceptional collaboration with a filmmaker with the ambition to deliver a visually powerful story that subtly delivers the brands message.
