More about the FOCAL International Awards
Producers, filmmakers and other creative professionals who have used library footage in all variety of genre including documentary, feature films and any other form of production or across all media platforms over the last year can submit their work for consideration.
We also honour the researchers, technicians and producers that access, maintain and use this precious resource with Awards on the night for best archive researcher, library and restoration work.
Since their inception in 2004, the FOCAL International Awards have recognised and championed the values of creativity, integrity and sustainability in screen culture. These awards are now, without doubt, the leading and most complete set of awards for the archive footage business in the world today.
