Best Film Award Selection Method
IFF recognizes that the ultimate “Judge Pannell” is the audience and provides each person with a voting card upon entering the cinema. The card, collected after the screening, has three options:
- Excellent, valued at 10 points
- Good, valued at 7 points
- Average, valued at 3 points
The audience votes are based on Artistic Value, Technical Performance (directors, actors, screenplay) and overall Entertainment Value. The points are added and then divided by the number of votes received giving an equal opportunity to all films regardless of time and day of the screening.
