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 Р20 min.) with 3 votes.

It only takes 3 simple steps

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

2. Enter your email address

3. Confirm your vote with the link in the UFM email

After each email confirmation you will be notified how many votes you can still cast.

Once you have confirmed a vote by email, it cannot be changed. Every vote counts the same. 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 our festival programme is made up of films of different genres and artistic interpretation, we decided to give each of you 3 equal votes per category. 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.
