About the Vintage Film Awards

Some films get better with age is the motto of The Vintage Film Awards, founded in 2015 with the mission of giving recognition to films with continuing impact on society – many of which were ignored by the major awards committees when they were first released. Each year, awards will be given to films released 20, 30, 40 and 50 years ago.

The 2nd Vintage Film Awards, honoring the films of 1996, 1986, 1976 and 1966, will be held in January 2017 in Los Angeles.
