PRIZES & AWARDS
This category is a competition.


The Michael Powell Award for Best British Feature Film
Michael Powell was one of Britain’s most original filmmakers, with a career spanning 60 years. The Michael Powell Award was inaugurated at EIFF in 1990 to honour imagination and creativity in British filmmaking and is regarded as a mark of prestige both within and outside the UK film industry. The award carries a cash prize of £20,000. Only UK feature fiction films are eligible for the Michael Powell Award.
Cash Award Value: 20,000 United Kingdom Pound


The Award for Best Performance in a British Feature Film
Judged by the Michael Powell Award Competition Jury, this award is intended to celebrate and promote the great tradition of the art of film performance in the UK. Only UK feature fiction films are eligible for this award.


The Award for Best International Feature Film
EIFF seeks to represent global trends in cinema by introducing important new films and new filmmaking directions. This award is intended to highlight filmmaking from outside the UK that is imaginative, innovative and deserving of wider recognition.
Cash Award Value: 10,000 United Kingdom Pound


CATEGORY RULES
The Edinburgh International Film Festival seeks to represent the most innovative and adventurous developments in world cinema, to bring worthy filmmakers to local and worldwide attention, and to provide a forum for appreciative and informed discussion of their work.

EIFF is especially interested in films by emerging filmmakers whose work manifests stylistic boldness, strength of form, and the ambition to use the medium in a way that resists cliché.

- ALL submitted films must be UK PREMIERES. Films that have previously been publicly screened or broadcast in Britain will not be accepted. This includes online screenings.

- Promotional films are NOT eligible (e.g. tourism, charitable appeals, etc.).

- All submitted films should be no more than 12 months old by June 2014.

- EIFF regards a Feature film as over 30 minutes.

- EIFF only accepts DVD SCREENERS.

- EIFF will not consider previously submitted work unless it has been considerably re-edited/re-shot. If you are unsure, it probably means it hasn't been changed enough. Please include a cover letter with details of the changes made. If we already viewed your film as a rough cut last year, we usually will not consider it for the following year.
