Einsiedeln Film Festival awards prices within two different categories.

  • Category “INTERNATIONAL”: The nomination of the international movies is made by the advisory board six months prior to the festival. The evaluation of the movies and the selection of the awarded best international movies is made by the audience. This is known as the ‘Audience Award’. In 2020, the festival awards a price in the category “International” for each of the following sub-categories:
    – Short animation
    – Short comedy
    – Short life action
  • Category “YOUNG TALENTS”: Newcomers and young talents can submit their own movie project during the year. Subscription

It is up to a professional jury to evaluate them and to select the best projects to be shown at the festival. A ‘Young Talent’ award, highlighting the best newcomer, will be made at the festival also.
