Audience Awards

Every film at this year’s festival is up for an Audience Award! Voted on by MFF audiences, the Audience Award is one of the most prestigious prizes at the festival.  Prizes will be awarded in the Documentary, Fiction, World Cinema, and Short Film Categories.


If you attend a film at our Carpool Theater, be on the look out after the show for an email from Montclair Film with instructions on how to vote.


Voting for Virtual Films can be done directly in our Virtual Cinema!  Once you begin watching a film, you’ll see the ballot appear below the Image Window.  Simply rate the film from 1 (low) to 5 (high) by clicking on the number.

If you are watching a Shorts Program, you’ll rate each Short Film separately.

Note: you will not be able to vote on the Montclair Film Roku or Apple TV app.  Please visit the film page on to cast your ballot.
