People's Choice Award

The 48FILM Festival People's Choice is the film our 48 VIP members liked the best. Voting comes exclusively from our VIP members, who select three entries. This helps to avoid "ballot box stuffing".

All entries to our international short film festival stream live in the Screening Room on our site. 48FILM Festival is global and ONLINE.

Grand Prize Winner

Our Grand Prize is awarded to the team leader of the Best Film. In addition, our winner gets prizes, special gifts and perks.

The TOP15, including our winning entries, are screened before a live audience of fans and showbiz pros at our Award Ceremony at the DIRECTORS GUILD of AMERICA in Hollywood.
