Image for Awards


International competition

Six loosely thematic programmes of international work, comprising fiction, documentary, animation and experimental/artists’ moving image, compete for the Bill Douglas Award for International Short Film and the International Audience Award. The Bill Douglas Award is presented to the film that in the view of the jury best reflects the qualities found in the work of Scotland’s greatest filmmaker: honesty, formal innovation and the supremacy of image and sound in cinematic storytelling. The award carries a cash prize.
