In Innsbruck, the cultural programme is rich and diverse. Part of it is the INF FILM who found a great supporter in the City of Innsbruck. Therefore, in the categories Best Nature Documentary and Best Environmental Documentary, the “Grand Prizes of the City of Innsbruck” are awarded by the Mayor of Innsbruck himself!

“GRAND PRIZE OF THE CITY OF INNSBRUCK
FOR THE BEST ENVIRONMENTAL DOCUMENTARY”
Worth € 3.000

SHORT FILMS

In cinema, TV and at festivals, short films are very often underrated and underappreciated. Largely, after a short period of festival screenings, they end up on the internet and then vanish completely. We very much value this art form and therefore, nominate Short Films to help them take their rightful place on the big screen.

“Award for the best short film
Worth € 2.000

“Award for the best animation short film
Worth € 1.000

TIROLER TAGESZEITUNG AWARD FOR YOUNG TALENTS

The Tiroler Tageszeitung is a print and online media platform with the strongest coverage in the federal state. To have them on board is very important for the INF FILM. To spread facts and to draw attention to issues is a concern both for the TT and for our youth and their films. The prize is generously provided by the Tiroler Tageszeitung.
