** Our Selection / Awards Procedure: Festival Director / Producers make official selections for the festival by vote. Official Selections are then screened/graded by 5 different judges and given an overall grade on a 10 point scale for each of the qualifying award categories (with the exception of the “Directors Choice Award”). All judges points are then added together to give it a grade. The top 4 films by grade points in each category are then considered an award nominee and listed on this page. The film with the highest grade in each category is considered and announced that category’s award winner at the festival. In the event of a tie for highest grade, the festival director and festival producer will vote on the tied films giving the majority vote the award. In the event that one of the festival production staff are involved in one of the films involving a tie, a 3rd party will be selected to vote in place of the production staff member involved.
 
**** The Festival Directors Choice Award nominees are the Film Festival Directors top 5 choice films of the festival. The Directors Choice Award is presented at the festival to the Directors favorite film of the festival. (Any film that the festival director is personally involved in at any level is not eligible for this award.)
