From the americanmovieawards.com website: “Originally founded in 1980 and televised nationally, the American Movie Awards arose to honor excellence in filmmaking, with winners such as Meryl Streep, Warren Beatty, Clint Eastwood, and Steven Spielberg. The awards influenced a generation of ambitious filmmakers with dreams to one day be recognized for their filmmaking achievements before their industry colleagues and the entertainment industry alike.
“Under new direction and with a renewed spirit, the American Movie Awards has reemerged to celebrate the very best in independent filmmaking. Our annual film and screenwriting competition is an important event aimed at recognizing independent filmmakers who are truly at the forefront of their craft as well as launching the careers of aspiring storytellers whose talent is of a caliber that demands accolade.” For all of this year’s winners, see: https://americanmovieawards.com/past-winners/2018
