The Audience

All members of the audience at the International Film Festival Mannheim Heidelberg are invited to vote on the films in the competition. With their ratings they decide on the Audience Award.

The Audience Award will be given to the film in competition that receives the best ratings from the audience. The criteria for the selection – be it rational, emotional or aesthetic – are solely in the hands of the audience. The wisdom of the masses, also known as swarm intelligence, decides – the most popular film wins. The prize is endowed with €5,000.
