Prizes & Awards

This category is a competition.

Special Jury Award
In 2010, the Margaret Mead Festival implemented the Margaret Mead Filmmaker Award. The Award recognizes documentary filmmakers who embody the spirit, energy, and innovation demonstrated by anthropologist Margaret Mead in her research, fieldwork, films, and writings. The award is given to a filmmaker whose feature documentary offers a new perspective on a culture or community remote from the majority of our audiences' experience as well as displays artistic excellence and originality in storytelling technique. Films selected for the Margaret Mead Film Festival that are U.S., North American, or World Premieres are eligible for the Award. A cash prize will be awarded.

Category Rules

• The Festival considers a range of non-narrative films and videos including feature length documentaries, hybrid works, shorts, experimental films, essay films, animation, and new media.
• Productions must have been completed within the last two years.
• Works in any language other than English must have English subtitles or English voiceover narration.
• The Festival does not accept resubmissions.
