Each round, projects are judged by a random team of invited experts from the film industry from around the world.
From the pool of our official selection, which has a very competitive acceptance rate, MIFA chooses the nominees and awards the winners of the season.
Besides the Major Award and the Best Student Award for each category, it can be given also Outstanding Achievement Awards (for the runner-ups) and Honorable Mentions.
The judges of the festival will carefully select the films to be nominated for awards, and create a selection of nominated films to be screened in front of the live audience. The fantastic event will give filmmakers opportunities to watch their film on the big screen as well as the opportunity for networking.
Also, for each round, MIFA decides and awards ONE overall winner (chosen from all categories) as Best Film Overall.
