The Festival presents three awards each year. The Tally Shorts Favorite and the Florida Favorite are determined by a panel of judges from the film industry and allied fields. Meet the 2020 judges.
In addition, the audience votes on an Audience Favorite Award.
Our program committee scours hundreds of hours of films from the region and around the world, bringing you the very best cinema from around the world. Films that tell stories you won’t hear or see anywhere else, that will challenge and excite you. Two hundred films from 30 countries were submitted and viewed by our program committee.
The 2020 film schedule includes 72 films, representing over 14 hours of incredible filmmaking.
We recommend buying an All Fest Pass that give you access to all films, events, and parties. All Fest Passes are more expensive day of Festival.
The Tally Shorts Box Office is located in the Turner Auditorium Lobby. The Box Office will open at 6PM on Friday, February 7, and 9AM on Saturday February 8.
Passes purchased in advance are picked up at the Box Office – we do not mail passes.
You may purchase passes and tickets to individual film blocks at the Box Office during the Festival.
