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. Only UK feature fiction films are eligible for the Michael Powell Award.

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. The award carries a cash prize.

Category Rules

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY:

- EIFF only accepts SECURE ONLINE SCREENERS and DVD SCREENERS. Please DO NOT send blu-ray screeners.

- ALL submitted Feature Fiction Films must be at least a UK PREMIERE. Films that have previously been publicly screened or broadcast in the UK will not be accepted.

- Films that are available publicly online are NOT eligible.

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

- All submitted films should be no more than 12 months old by June 2017.

- EIFF regards a Feature film as over 30 minutes.

- 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.

The full EIFF Submissions Rules and Regulations can be found at www.edfilmfest.org.uk/submissions

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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.
