Golden Goblet Awards Overview
Competition sections for Golden Goblet Award fall into four categories, which include main competition for feature-length films, as well as competitions specialized in documentary, animation and short films. They bring together over 2,000 films from more than 100 countries and regions around the world every year. The Competitions present films of different genres, not only by big names, but also by those who are young and talented, but not yet internationally known. Regardless of varied topics and styles, the films stimulate and inspire emotionally by showcasing different cultures through stories and images.
The competition films are advised by festival programmers and overseas delegates, thus are chosen from by a selection committee to be finally judged by the International Jury within the festival.
Three different jury panels are made up of professionals in the world film industry. Press and public pay a lot of attention to who are on the jury, as this is proof of the festival’s high profile. The jury panels discuss, independently make decisions on winners, and present Golden Goblet trophies.
