2020 Jury and Audience awards

We’re excited to be able to announce the winners of this year’s jury and audience prizes at GIRAF. This year’s festival jury was Ryan Pierson, an Assistant Professor at the University of Calgary’s Department of Film, Media and Communications whose research often focuses on animation history; local illustrator and animator Jarett Sitter, whose artwork has been part of numerous festivals, magazines and other publications; and Vicki Chau, long-time Programming Director of EMMEDIA, a Calgary-based artist-run centre dedicated to media art production and exhibition.

Jury Awards

Our jury awards for Best Canadian Short Film and Best International Short Film both come with a $200CAD cash prize for the filmmakers.

Audience choice awards

At each of our shorts packages, audiences are asked to rate each film they watch on a scale of one to five. On top of giving our programmers a good idea of what films were hits for the GIRAF crowd, we also use those ballots to figure out our Audience Choice winners. This year, our audience and jury were very much on the same page.
