PRIZES & AWARDS
This category is a competition.


Open City Grand Jury Award

Best UK Documentary Award

This prize is shared with other categories.


Best Emerging Director Award
Awarded to the director of the best film in this category. The director could be from anywhere in the world (including UK). * Open City Docs Fest defines emerging as having started making films in the last 5 years of your life. To be eligible, the filmmaker should not have had a cinematic release or a TV broadcast in a primetime slot. The filmmaker can be any age and may be in education, a recent graduate or may not have any educational qualifications. We are looking for a fresh new voice in documentary, who challenges form as well as content.
This prize is shared with other categories.
