The Brickfilmer's Guild Film Festival (originally called the Brickfilmer's Guild Animation Festival) is an annual event held by "The Four Monkeys" and the Brickfilmer's Guild to recognise brickfilms released within a year that excel in various categories. It has run every year since 2012. Unlike the similar Bricks in Motion Awards, films must be submitted for consideration.

The festival features main categories such as Best Brickfilm, Best Cinematography and Best Animation, and also includes less formal Honorable Mention categories. These are often more specific categories, such as Best Star Wars Brickfilm or Best Video Game Themed Brickfilm, and change each year. They are mainly included for fun, and have not featured prizes.

2012 Brickfilmer's Guild Animation Festival Edit

The first Brickfilmer's Guild Animation Festival was announced in 2012 by "The Four Monkeys", who were also the judges.[1] Entrants were allowed to submit up to three films each, and over 250 entries were received. Prizes for the eight main categories were provided by BrickWarriors, BrickStix, David Pickett, Spencer Olson and The Four Monkeys.[2]
