HBO Audience Awards

HBO knows how to find and grow incomparable content that is often a bit left of the main. So it’s no surprise that they support PIFF’s extensive efforts to grow fresh indie talent. One of the ways they step up is by providing awards for the audience’s Best Narrative Feature, Best Documentary Feature and Best Short Film picks.

The awards are based entirely upon audience balloting and are announced during our Closing Night Party June 21. In other words, PIFF’s most prominent awards are decided by the most important panel of judges — you.
