Announcing the Official Selections into the 4th Annual I See You Awards®!



The day has finally arrived! We are announcing the official selections into the 4th Annual I See You Awards®!


But, before we run down the list, we want to thank all of the filmmakers who submitted their projects. From features, shorts, documentaries, screenplays and - for the first time this year - web series, the level of quality displayed in the projects we receive gets higher and higher each and every year, so this was certainly not an easy decision. To those filmmakers who do not see their projects and/or names listed, we are truly incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to view your work. We wish you the best of luck with your project going forward and hope to see more from you in the future.


Now, here are the 2020 I See You Awards® official selections and nominees!
