The winner of the prestigious Audience Award, sponsored by Caledonian MacBrayne and voted for by audiences during the festival, was announced as crowd-pleasing. heart-warming documentary, The Hermit of Treig, from first-time director Lizzie MacKenzie.

This year’s festival saw sell-out audiences attend a programme of 10 World premieres, 4 European premieres, 65 UK premieres, and 13 Scottish premieres. GFF continued to champion international female talent behind the camera, with 40% of new films screening at the festival and 5 of the 7 films nominated for the Audience Award directed by women.

The festival welcomed a host of guests onto the red carpet, including Alan Cumming, Jack Lowden, Don Letts, Armando Iannucci, Amanda Brugel, Icíar Bollaín, Ruth Paxton, Lulu, Alfred Enoch, Jacqueline Lentzou and welcomed 565 delegates from around the world to the dedicated Industry Focus programme, which covered everything from pitching workshops to creating equal access to a career in filmmaking.

For the first time in its history, the festival's Opening and Closing Galas, The Outfit and Murina, along with International Women's Day Gala Happening, screened simultaneously at partner cinemas across the UK, taking GFF's distinct festival experience and key premieres from the programme far and wide .
