Our History

Welcome to the Golden Trailer Awards, the premiere movie marketing awards show that shines a spotlight on the unsung heroes of the worldwide film and television marketing industry. The prestigious annual ceremony is a celebration of the best and brightest in the industry, ranging from independent artists to major trailer houses, who have showcased exceptional creativity in crafting trailers, teasers, TV spots, posters, and more!

Since our inception in 1999, the Golden Trailer Awards have revolutionized the way we appreciate and recognize the “creatives behind the curtain.” We introduced a playful twist to our industry by premiering the nominated trailers in a golden painted airstream trailer-turned-movie theater during the Sundance festival in 2000. This unique approach gave birth to the GTA brand, which has since become synonymous with excellence in film and television marketing.

Over the years, the GTAs have grown to include a remarkable 100 categories, both show and non-show, that celebrate groundbreaking concepts and ideas in movie marketing. These innovative concepts have become highly anticipated and revered, capturing the essence of the movie and television industry. Each year, The Golden Trailer Awards assembles a distinguished jury comprising renowned A-list actors, producers, directors, and executives. Together, they create a captivating evening of entertainment that pays tribute to the very best our industry has to offer.


The Golden Trailer Awards have garnered significant attention from esteemed publications and broadcast shows over the years, solidifying its reputation as the go-to authority in movie marketing. The Wall Street Journal, CBS, NBC, ABC, Fox, Variety, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Time, and the Hollywood Reporter (to name a few) have all featured the GTAs, recognizing the impact and importance of our mission.

Experience a night filled with entertainment, glamour, and the recognition of exceptional talent that drives the success of the film and television industry.
