HOLLYWOOD, CA, UNITED STATES, July 10, 2021 — The I AM Awards were created with Vanda Teixeira for the Hollywood Film Fest. They became the first Film Festival to award films based on energetic frequency. It was also the first film festival to award NFTs(non-fungible tokens) to filmmakers for their awards. The Hollywood Film Fest closed on July 6 with the announcement of the Audience Awards.
The biggest winner was “Our Neighbor’s Shadow” as the “I AM Award” winner. It was also a 5 Star Award Connection finalist. It was selected independently through different judges for Hollywood Film Fest for Best Hollywood Feature Film, Best Hollywood Producer, Best Hollywood Director, Best Actor, Massi Furlan and Best Actress, Gley Viera.
“Katie Cutie, Ashu and the Funny Mouse” held its world premiere during the I Hollywood Film Fest and
Dr Shahid Kamal and Dr Samir Srivastava earned a finalist nod and a 5 Star Awards Connection Runner up the award, the 5 Star Awards Beauty Winner for “Cinnamon” awarded Best Hollywood Mini Movie International. They were awarded three other trophies for Best Hollywood Mini Movie and Best Hollywood Director for Mini Movies for their film “Matty Boy” and Best Hollywood Mini Movie Children for “Take the Chocolate”.
Winners were selected utilising traditional rating analysis and awards determined by Vanda through a vibrational frequency and energy pull of the film or digital content. Remarkably, or perhaps not so remarkably, awards intersected through separate analysis and judging.
The I AM Award held the highest vibration and is the I AM presence within all of us. The symbol is the feminine divine that carries a five-pointed star which is part of the I AM Thread, founded on love, peace and honour. The 5 Star Awards include Connection, Positive Consciousness, Attunement, Expression and Beauty. The Rising Rays of Light Awards were awarded for Courage, Insight and Intuition.
“Be connected to your higher self and express your true self and your desires, and that will make a difference”, shares Vanda.
As a filmmaker, what are you sharing? Why are you sharing it? Is it to make a difference or purely to entertain? When you’re watching a movie, what makes you feel good about watching it? Sometimes people can define it, but what makes a movie a people’s choice award or an audience favourite?
The Oscar® statuette symbolises achievement for the Academy Awards®; for the I Hollywood Film Fest, it’s the I AM symbol and statuette, feminine and masculine with arms raised holding a five-pointed star. This Goddess statuette is the golden image artwork, trademarked by Vanda Inc with digital formatting by Mark Johnson and featured on the festival poster.
