Our Voting Process

We invite everyone to be a juror and determine the winners of the Audience Award
in our two categories (-5 min. and 5 – 25 min.) with 3 votes. You can award one gold, one silver and one bronze medal per category.

It only takes 4 simple steps

1. Click the “vote button” on our festival homepage. 

2. Choose the award for the film in the pop-up window.

3. Enter your email address.

4. Click the link in the UFM E-mail to confirm your votes.

Once you have confirmed your votes by email, they cannot be changed.  So think carefully about which 3 films in each category should get your votes.

Why do we do it this way?

We have thought long and hard about what is the most democratic and fair way to determine our audience winners. Since we want to collect and store as little data as possible from you, this process seemed the most practical for all participants. When confirming your vote, you can decide whether you want to be informed about the outcome of the competition and whether we can save your address for the UFM newsletter. We would very much appreciate if you would let us know how we can improve this process.
