FiveD.TV Film Festival promotes independent filmmakers creating content that matters and that inspires awareness in any of these three genres: Star Nations, Human Ascension, Earth Revival.

- Human Ascension: Health and Wellness. Food and Nutrition. Relationships. Death and Dying. Past Lives / Future Lives (Projection of Consciousness). Channeling. Developing Intuition. Vocation / Life Purpose. Personal Growth.

FiveD.TV Film Festival, currently in its first year, honors the achievements of filmmakers and digital storytellers who produce quality films with uplifting messages of hope and renewal for humanity and its future. Industry veterans and new filmmakers from all over the globe are welcome to submit their materials. A goal of FiveD.TV Film Festival is to provide a platform to independent filmmakers and help them get their work out globally.
FiveD.TV Film Festival is about helping filmmakers connect with their audience and grow their audience base by giving them a platform that places their work directly in front of audiences that can interact with the film in a safe online community: a fifth dimension community of diverse people from all over the globe. Official selections will be showcased on FiveD.TV, a unique TV and Film SVOD service accessible to a worldwide audience. In addition, selected filmmakers will also have the opportunity to opt-in to having our subscribers pay the filmmaker $250 USD for a screening license, streaming the film from our website, encouraging fifth dimension communities globally to come together while giving filmmakers exposure (they may even arrange to Skype in at the screenings!). The Founder of FiveD.TV who is also an award winning filmmaker has found this arrangement to be successful in regards to her films being licensed and screened abroad, having gained international recognition while building a global network.
Serving filmmakers, directors, producers, actors and creative teams creating conscious content is FiveD.TV Film Festival’s goal while giving them positive exposure and recognition they deserve. Award winners are promoted through press releases, social media, and via our online platform.

Awards & Prizes:
Film technical quality, creativity and message are celebrated in three levels of achievement: Best of Show (one grand prize winner from all categories will receive for free our stunning Regal Crystal Statuette); Award of Excellence (award issued in the three genres: Star Nations, Human Ascension, Earth Revival), and Award of Merit (recognizes achievement in any or all genres, no fixed number of these awards are granted). Laurels and letters of recognition are issued for the last two awards and the Regal Crystal Statuette can be ordered with engraving for a fee. Please inquire for cost.
The judging takes place by in-house staff including an Academy Award Winner (Oscar) and other award nominees. Entries do not compete against each other, rather entries are judged individually and scored accordingly.
In addition, a fourth award is given called the Audience Choice Award. Here, subscribers of FiveD.TV vote on their favorite film in the festival. Laurels are issued for this award as well as for Official Selection. Again, the Regal Crystal Statuette can be ordered with engraving for a fee.
The Regal Series Crystal Award is a stunning Optical Crystal Award. This award comes in a satin lined presentation box. Crystal is chosen due to its high vibration link to the 5th Dimension.
