Originality / Creativity, Direction, Writing, Cinematogrpahy, Performances, Production Value, Pacing, Structure, & Sound/Music​

KRAKEN AWARD

The Kraken is awarded to an excellently crafted short that was truly unexpected - as surprising as a kraken in a landlocked state.

This award goes to one of the most original or creative shorts we see in our festival lineup. One that reaches off the screen, grabs us, and refuses to let go. 

AUDIENCE CHOICE AWARD

This award is for the most crowd-pleasing short, and is chosen through popular vote by attendees at the 2021 No Coast Film Festival.

2022 Guest judges

More judges will be added to this list as we get closer to the festival.
