In 1985, Film Fest Gent held its inaugural feature-length film competition focusing on 'the impact of music on film'. Each year our team of programmers selects 12-15 films in the Official Competition. An international jury then presents the winners of the Grand Prix for Best Film and the Georges Delerue Award for Best Soundtrack or Sound Design.
Best International Short Film Award
The Best International Short Film Award is awarded by an international jury to the best submission to the International Short Film Competition. Fiction, animation, documentary as well as everything that could be considered an 'experiment' is eligible for the award.
