Audience Award
Audience Award

The Audience Award is arguably one of the most revered at any given festival.  This decoration is decided on by the attending festival, rather than a Jury, and at DaVinci International Film Festival, it goes to the viewer’s choice in dramatic, documentary, and world cinema.
