The results are in! Planet Cinema, the shining star in the realm of online film awards, unveiled its winners for the 2023 season, placing the spotlight firmly on groundbreaking independent films and their creators.

Topping the chart with a staggering nine awards is “Oh My Night” from director Isis Mihrimah Cabolet, while “Victim of Love” from director Jesper Isaksen was hot on its heels with five awards.

These movies were among the top ten films vying for the grand prize of Best Picture of the Year.

Planet Cinema is not just about accolades. It provides a unique platform for filmmakers to earn IMDb-accredited awards, as well as valuable professional film reviews. It champions those films that may not necessarily pass muster with giants like Cannes but deserve their moment of acknowledgment.
