Image for Audience Award

Audience Award

The GFF Audience Award is the festival’s only prize and is all the more coveted because it is chosen by the most important person at the festival: you. Ten emerging filmmakers at the start of glittering careers all contend for your top vote. This is your chance to spot talent and reward it. Voting slips are handed out at the start of all Audience Award-nominated screenings - simply cast your vote as you exit the cinema. The winner will be announced at the Closing Gala and online on Sunday 4 March.

Blue My Mind - Sat 24 & Tue 27 Feb
