The ICVM Crown Awards

Honoring the Best in Indie Christian Film

You’ve made a film you want the world to see – now take the next step!   

Enter the 52nd Annual ICVM Crown Awards today, the granddaddy of Christian Awards shows!

Go here to enter:

We award 21 categories for every type of production, including Movies, Documentaries, Foreign Films, Series, Shorts, Foreign Films, Church Media, Student Films, Comedy, Best Actor, Best Actress and more.

We will announce the 5 finalists in each category at a dinner ceremony at the ICVM Storytellers Conference October 12th in Washington, DC  (You don’t have to be present to win.)

Those 5 finalists advance to the 52nd annual red-carpet ICVM Crown Awards Ceremony at the NRB Christian Media Convention in Grapevine, TX February 24-27, where the 3 winners in each category will be announced and get their awards on-stage!  

Why does winning at NRB mean more?

Because NRB brings together over 3,500 of the top Christian TV, radio and film professionals. So winning an ICVM Crown Award in front of them can bring far greater promotional opportunities than most festivals.

Deadline’s coming up soon! Enter now on Film Freeway!


History & Purpose

Since 1973, when a group of distributors began to honor the work of Christian film producers, the traditional awards ceremony has made a great ending to the ICVM conference each year. The Crown Awards are a celebration of films and film-makers, encouraging and inspiring creativity by showcasing great examples of excellence in communicating Christian values.
