Prizes & Awards

This category is a competition.

Christopher and Dana Reeve Audience Award
First presented in 2006, the Reeve Award is named for two loyal friends of WFF and onetime Advisory Board members. Voting is throughout the Festival, with the winner announced at the end. The prize: an original artwork by famed painter and WFF Board member Stephen Hannock. Three Reeve winners (and seven WFF shorts overall) have gone on to Academy Award nominations for live action or animated short, and two - GOD OF LOVE and CURFEW - have captured the Oscar.
Value of Goods/Services: 18,000 U.S. Dollar

Category Rules

Screeners should be in excellent shape - nothing "almost-done" or "in-progress."

DCP is preferred for exhibition format.

Filmmakers who want work returned should enclose an SASE.

If titles are chosen for the Festival, filmmakers will be contacted by September 26, 2014.
