Awards and Juries
Over the years we have screened many outstanding films by brave and artistic voices at RIFF. The ones that show artistic excellence and break boundaries will win awards. The films in our New Visions section will compete for the most acclaimed award of the festival: The Golden Puffin, whose recipient will be named Discovery of the Year.
An award will be also given the most outstanding film in the documentary competition section A Different Tomorrow.
Short films from the participants in the Talent Lab will compete for the Golden Egg.
And we also award the best of our national cinema with our Best Icelandic Short and the Best International Short in our International Shorts competitive section.
Discovery of the Year: The Golden Puffin
The films in our competitive category New Visions are all debut or sophomore efforts. One will be named Discovery of the Year and receive the Golden Puffin.
