We’re delighted to announce the award categories for the 2020 STARBURST International Film Festival. The awards are the culmination of the two-day event and see filmmakers and actors receive the coveted Roboto statue. All the films and shorts screened throughout the festival are eligible for the awards and this year the competition is a tough as it has ever been.
The categories this year are:
Best Feature – sponsored by Horror Channel
Best Director – sponsored by Fabulous Films
Best Art and Design
Distinction in Sound
Independents Day Award
The Charlie Allbright Award
The last award is a new category named after the late writer and academic, who we not only counted as a colleague but a friend. This will be presented to the film or individual that we feel best promotes LGBTQ+ values.
The STARBURST International Film Festival takes place on March 13th and 14th at Social7 at the Landing, MediaCityUK, Salford, Manchester. Check out www.starburstfilmfest.co.uk for information on the films and guests and book tickets.
