Welcome to the prestigious Knight of the Reel Awards, a renowned Film Festival located in the historic city of Hyderabad, often referred to as the City of Nizams. This optimistic festival places its spotlight on the bold, creative, and talented artists of our time. We extend a warm invitation to ingenious filmmakers from all corners of the world, providing them with a platform to showcase their exceptional projects to industry experts and a global audience.

At Knight Reel Awards, we are committed to offering opportunities to global filmmakers who possess immense potential but may often find themselves overlooked. We actively encourage and honour these gifted individuals for their creativity and dedication. Our festival welcomes all forms and genres of movies, embracing the diversity of creative expression. An integral part of our festival is the opportunity for recognition and networking within the global film community, setting us apart from the rest.

Quality is at the heart of our values, and we wholeheartedly embrace experimental genres that meet the criteria of delivering high-quality content. Every submitted film undergoes a meticulous review process, culminating in the selection of the best entries in each category. These outstanding works are then recognized by a panel of expert professionals, who use their discerning judgment to determine the winners. The Knight Reel Awards is a celebration of excellence in filmmaking and a gateway to global recognition for talented creators.

Awards & Prizes

Laurel and Certificates will be provided to the officially selected projects every month and customized certificates and laurels will be provided to the winners. Moreover, they will receive ratings on their respective IMDb pages (if it is applicable). There will be a nomination for the monthly winners of our annual live screening of the Knight of the Reel Awards.

6. The filmmaker will receive a notification once their submitted film is selected officially, and consequently, the respective film will be enlisted under the Official Selection of the festival Website.
