Palme-Dewar is an open short film competition held in Aberfeldy, Perthshire, as part of the Aberfeldy Film Festival during November each year. The competition is for films - less than 10 minutes in length - that are made in Scotland, on a Scottish theme or by film-makers based in Scotland.
The local Heartland Film Society developed and launched the Palme-Dewar award in 2009.
The final screening is hosted by Dewar's Aberfeldy at their historic Distillery. Dewar's made the first advertising film for whisky in 1898 and the first documentary on the making of Scotch whisky.
Competition winners receive a Palme-Dewar Certificate.
The winning film-maker receives a bottle of 12 year old Dewar's Aberfeldy single malt whisky, an engraved decanter, and a £350 cash prize. The runner-up and third placed film-makers each receive a bottle of Dewar's Aberfeldy malt whisky.
Winning film-makers are invited to show their films at a later date in the award-winning Birks Cinema in Aberfeldy.
Films to be made either on a Scottish theme, in Scotland or by film-makers based in Scotland. Films to be no more than 10 minutes in length.
Films are shortlisted by the Jury before being screened in the Auditorium at Dewar's Aberfeldy Distillery. The winning films are chosen by a public vote at the screening.
