Awards Gala

The Awards Gala is an opportunity for all the participating filmmakers to recognize their efforts into producing the great films that are programmed into this year's festival.  This year's awards gala will be held on the evening of Sunday, June 23 at The Royal Cinema

Each year, the Awards Gala is where the work of our filmmakers receive feedback on their work by a panel of industry professionals with accomplishments in various fields of film.  Awards include:

- Achievement in Animation
for animated works
- Our unique Cultural Relevancy award for the film that engages a local youth audience in their story and message
- The Youth Emerging Artist Award to a young director 18 years old or younger
- and more! 

Awards come with an array of prizes that will help filmmakers with their next project.

Tickets for the awards gala are $12 each when purchased in advance and $15 on site.
