There is a $40 submission fee* for each submission


Our Online festival will showcase a selection of submitted films during each quarterly event. All selected films will receive a written or video review and will be available on LavaVolt for members to rate. After the submission deadline has expired our selection panel will choose 20 top contenders based on ratings, views and industry professional opinions (our advisory board judges). These 20 top films will be showcased and compete for the awards to the right. These will be announced September 20, 2014 and an Online Live Awards Ceremony will be held Sept 25.

Not all submitted films will be accepted into LavaVolt’s Online Film Festival. Our submission panel will choose films based on artistic value, production quality and general watch-ability. *Submission fees are not refundable so please submit your best work for consideration into the film festival.
