GAZE International LGBT Film Festival is delighted to officially announce the winners of the GAZE Film Awards 2017.
The jury awards are in the categories of BEST IRISH SHORT, BEST INTERNATIONAL SHORT and BEST DOCUMENTARY, and were chosen by an independent Irish and international film jury. The AUDIENCE AWARD was chosen by the wonderful GAZE audience, from an exit poll taken after each festival screening.

A huge thank you to this year's festival jury, compromising of four fantastic individuals - John Butler (Director), Muffin Hix (Programmer - Fringe!
