No festival without awards. All the films in the Flemish and European competitions are eligible for both audience and jury prizes. The winner of the Flemish Jury Award earns a nice bonus: this award is Academy Award® Qualifying. And there is more good news: from this year onwards, the festival jury nominates one film from the European and Flemish Competitions for the European Film Awards.
Another new element this year: two additional prizes within the Flemish Competition. There is the Jury Award for the Best Documentary Short and the Jury Award for Best Acting Performance. And there is more: several prizes at the festival are handed out by guests. In addition to the Press Prize, handed out by the UBFP and UFK, there is also the HUMO Award - a festival fixture.
And last but not least, the Flemish Audiovisual Fund will be present to hand out the celebrated VAF Wildcards.
The award ceremony takes place on the closing night, Saturday December 9, at 8 pm.
All winning films will be screened that same night.
