How the winners are selected...

With detailed scoring and judging, the most engaged and talented projects are awarded. The festival scoring consists of two rounds:

Round 1: Social Round. The first round is open to the general public, where for the whole week votes are collected on the festival's Vimeo On Demand page.

Round 2: Internal Judges Round. The top 5 films from the social round will be sent to Lift-Off's Internal Judges, who will go further in-depth and score the films based on multiple aspects. The film with the highest overall score wins.
