The GMA’s exhibit the best in upcoming and seasoned filmmakers giving them a platform to showcase their work and be awarded in a professional setting. Their mission is simple.
“We strongly believe that every movie is the result of hard work and, as such, they deserve our jury’s full attention during the evaluation and the best works deserve our acknowledgement and appreciation. Our company is based in London but we are an international Film Festival and our staff come from many countries. Our live screenings take place in multiple cities across the globe, offering the filmmaker the best opportunity to have their work seen and celebrated in the way we believe it deserves.”
The GMAs works in a quite unique way. Instead of being just a single event annually there are two strands to the awards. Every month the jury select and award winners in all the major categories. These film makers are then invited to the annual ceremony where the overall winners are announced.
