The 21st Nevermore Film Festival Audience Awards

The Audience Awards are a balloted award selected by the audiences who attended eligible screenings. Upon entry to feature films, audiences are handed a paper ballot upon which they are requested to “score” the film on a 1-10 sliding scale, where 1 is the lowest and 10 is the highest rating. Upon entry to shorts programs, audiences are handed a paper ballot upon which they are requested to select the one film from the program block which was their favorite. Films in respective categories which receive the highest score are announced as the winners.
