The Official Selections are reviewed by the Judging Panel and receive scores from the attending audience throughout the festival. After the festival closes, the weighted scores are combined, and the top-scoring films are promoted into the internal 'Network Round'.

The Network Round is hosted on the Lift-Off Network Hub, where the Lift-Off Jury and Network Hub Members score the films and vote for the winners.

After the festival closes, prizes are awarded, and winning projects are placed on the Season Award Nominations Shortlist. Lift-Off Season Award Nominations are allocated by the Jury based on merit within each category.

    I was extremely excited to be selected and be a part of this festival. I will look for it in the future for further competitions to take part in. It was an honor to have been selected and I wish to thank those who are responsible for the selection of my screenplay. It was most enjoyable to watch the presentation and announcement of the winners.
