About

Ouchy Film Awards (OFA) is a film & script award competition. After 4 successful editions, we organize our 5th edition in a new format. In this new format, we accept feature films, short films and movie screenplays. First time in the world, we will give some of our awards by using the artificial intelligence.

As in our previous editions, our event will take place in Lausanne, Switzerland, 7-9 July 2022

The official selection that will be screened on this edition will be processed thought 4 seasonal sessions to select nominees.
We award the best films after a comprehensive review process. Our evaluation includes the critique on six categories: acting, directing, editing, script, sound, and cinematography. As for the screenplays, the categories evaluated are originality, structure, plot, pacing, characters and dialogues.

We have five categories of nominations for this edition:
– Best Feature Film
– Best Short Film
– Best Acting
– Best Screenplay
– AI Award for Best Screenplay

For each of the 4 seasons, 2 feature films, 5 screenplays and 5 short films will be nominated by our international jury.

In the event, we will have two different jury. First jury members will be experienced people from the movie industry. Second jury will be the artificial intelligence.
