There will be a variety of awards for selected films across the weekend, including Best short, Best Music Video, Best Actor and Best Student Film. In 2018, we added two new award categories, namely our Environmental Awareness Award that rewards films that raise awareness of sustainability & preservation of our planet/environment. The second is our Human Rights & Social Change Award, for films that highlight issues from International human rights abuses, to advancing equality and social acceptance for the LGBT community.
The Disappear Here Film Festival will make the following awards:
• Best Live Action Short Film (Ireland)
• Best Live Action Short Film (International)
• Best Music Video
• Best Student Film
• Best Documentary
• Best Actor
• The Northern Exposure Award (For emerging Filmmakers*)

*We will offer a EUR 500.00 Bursary to a selected new emerging talent.
