About the Awards


In addition to promoting short films and filmmakers, we celebrate achievement through a number of awards including Best Short Film, Best Performance, Best Director, Best Writing, Best Cinematography and Best Documentary Short Subject. We also celebrate a number of genre awards. There is no monetary prize for winners, however all selected and winning films are promoted by the festival, receive official laurels and are screened a the festival.

Submitted films are judged by a panel of filmmakers and selected entries are granted 'Official Selection' status. Selected films are then judged at the festival with finalists and winners screened in front of live festival audiences.
