Welcome to the Brand Film Awards


Congratulations to our 2020 finalists and winners
On behalf of PRWeek and Campaign we would like to extend a huge congratulations again to everyone on this year's shortlist and the winners from this year's show. It is more important now than ever before that we stay connected within the industry. Spread the word through social media #BrandFilmAwards / @BrandFilmAwards.

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 brand's message. 

So a huge thank you to everyone who entered this year's Brand Film Awards, we have loved celebrating with you this week and look forward to seeing you all next year!
