The Jury constituted of professionals from the areas of Film, Theater, Journalism and Photography will decide on the winners for the best scenario, directing, acting, the special Jury Award and finally – the Grand Prix of the Festival.
All the 105 movies were qualified for an Audience Award that will be given based on the total number of "likes", acquired on Facebook.
