A tradition started in 2008, the Dioraphte Award (€10.000) is given to one of the Hubert Bals Fund-supported films screened at IFFR.
In 2008, the winner was selected by a jury. From 2009 on, the Dioraphte Award goes to the Hubert Bals Fund-supported film with the highest vote from the festival audience each year.
