CINE Golden Eagle Competition

Launched in 1957 with the mission of selecting American films for international film festivals, the semi-annual CINE Golden Eagle Competion honors the best in film, television and digital media. From its earliest days, CINE utilized (and still utilizes) a jury system to choose the best among the many films submitted, honoring them with the CINE Golden Eagle Award; the peer recognition of excellence that a prestigious CINE Golden Eagle confers still opens doors.  In the more than half century since its first competition, CINE alumni whose films have made the world laugh, cry, think, argue and change, include Ken Burns, Mel Brooks, Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard, Spike Lee, Stanley Nelson, Mira Nair, Robert Zemeckis, Jim Henson, Pixar Animation Studios, Quincy Jones and Mike Nichols - and that's just a partial list.

Some things stand the test of time, and CINE's knack for picking winners is one of them. The opportunity for emerging filmmakers to join this prestigious group continues. Recently, several of the winning films in our student division have gone on to win gold or silver medals at the Student Academy Awards, have shown their films at major festivals, and are working in the industry at places such as Walt Disney Animation Studios. 

The competition has kept pace with the industry, with new divisions and categories to provide opportunities for a variety of media producers. The CINE Golden Eagle Competition includes divisions for student and independent filmmakers in all genres; TV documentaries, fiction, reality and news; advertising; children's programming; industrials; and digital programming.

Do you think your production has what it takes to win a CINE Golden Eagle Award? Show us what you've got!
