Yes. We have three main award types. The Florida Filmmaker award, the Directors’ Choice Award, and the Audience Favorite awards, of which there are numerous subcategories. Award types and Audience Favorite subcategories are subject to change.
The Audience Favorite awards have no cash value. The TFF Directors’ Choice Award comes with a $500 cash prize. The Florida Filmmaker Award, presented by Flamingo Magazine (aka “The Flamingo Prize”), comes with a $1,000 cash prize. Films eligible for the Florida Filmmaker Award are directed by a current Florida resident and/or consist of a majority above-the-line crew who are current Florida residents and were shot in Florida. Please provide this information in your cover letter. Actual awards and/or cash prizes may be distributed within 60 days after the last day of the Festival. Read the Rules & Terms for complete details and information about eligibility. Award recipients will be announced on September 3, 2023, at the Festival, and filmmakers not present in person will be notified thereafter via email. The judges’ decisions are final.
