The Academy of Death Racers Festival is an international online film festival celebrating the best short films of the year and promoting widely available screenings for the public. The first AODR Festival was held from the 14th – 30th January 2022. Whilst one of the aims of the Academy of Death Racers is to help as many people as possible watch every film nominated for an Academy Award in every category before the Oscars ceremony, we also want our community to be exposed to other interesting, thought-provoking content which can sometimes be very difficult to access. The 2022 AoDR Festival had 4 competitive strands, the winner of each receiving a cash prize of $125 apiece for excellence in the following categories:
  • Animated short film
  • Documentary short film
  • Live-action short film
  • Film with LGBTQ+ theme (short or feature)
In addition, a $100 prize for Audience choice will be awarded to the film given the highest rating by the attendees of the festival, with $50 awarded to second and third place films.

The branches of the Academy of Death Racers are pleased to announce the shortlists for the 2022 Awards. Anyone is welcome to become a member of the AoDR and everyone can vote on all of these categories, as well as those that form the Academy Awards.
