The vote and the European Audience Award
When the viewer has finished watching the film, they can give it a score from 1 to 5. The film with the highest score will receive the European Audience Award of €20,000 max. The award, which is shared between the director and the international sales agent, is intended to encourage a wider geographical distribution of the film.
The Young Audience Award
A Jury of ten young Europeans, aged between 18 and 25, votes to award a prize worth €10,000 to one of the 10 films from the Festival selection. The young Europeans will be invited to Paris for the European Audience Award and the Young Public Award Ceremony in January (if international health guidelines allow).
THE SPECTATOR AWARDS
At the end of the Festival, in January 2021, ArteKino will announce the following prizes to registered spectators who voted for the films online:
