The GFF21 Audience Award is sponsored by Caledonian Macbrayne.

Each year, we support new and emerging talent by selecting outstanding features by first or second time directors that are eligible for the Audience Award. All of them showcase a director whose work deserves the love and attention of a wider audience. All you have to do is vote for your favourite. The 2021 winner will be announced online on Sunday 7 March.

This year’s nominees are:


Castro's spies 

Preparation to be Together for an Unknown Period of Time

Redemption of a Rogue
