Tally Shorts Film Festival gives out two judged awards every year. The Tally Shorts Favorite Award is given to the best overall film in the festival. The Florida Favorite Award is given to the best film originating from Florida.
We’d like to give a big thank you to our distinguished panel of judges who had the unenviable task of picking the lone winners from an extremely high quality grouping of films.
