Welcome to the New Season Of RSTMPA!
The Royal Society of Television & Motion Picture Awards (RSTMPA) stands as an International Film Festival orchestrated by a collective of prominent industry professionals and film communities spanning the globe. RSTMPA aims to provide filmmakers worldwide with a platform to shine, showcasing their exceptional works. Our festival meticulously selects and presents the finest creations, supporting outstanding producers in gaining visibility on the global stage.
RSTMPA goes beyond mere cinematic display, striving to align artistic, social, and inspirational objectives through its film revelations. Devoted to unveiling novel and imaginative films, RSTMPA is a dedicated supporter of the next generation of filmmakers and creators globally. Our commitment extends to promoting social change, fostering cultural diversity, and enhancing cross-cultural understanding among nations.
In a unique approach, RSTMPA not only celebrates the pinnacle of classic moviemaking but actively champions experimental works that break new ground in non-narrative forms, seamlessly blending into the realm of video arts. Every submitted film undergoes thorough review, with the best in each category earning a coveted spot in the festival lineup. A discerning jury of industry professionals then deliberates to select the ultimate winners.
The officially selected projects in each month will receive laurels and certificates. The monthly winners will receive customized certificates and laurels and they will be rated at their respective IMDb pages (if applicable). All monthly winners will be automatically nominated for the annual Awards (The Best of the Best) and will be invited to our annual live screening Award event in Kolkata.
