Audience Award

The Audience Award is where festival audiences decide which film they feel deserves recognition. The award acts as a kind of opinion indicator separate from the professional juries, and tells us what our audiences are currently most interested in. The Audience Award, worth €1,000, has been sponsored by Sparkasse Dortmund since 2017. The process for selecting this year’s winner will take place online. Entries must be at least 60 minutes long and no more than two years old. We look forward to receiving your vote!
