AUDIENCE AWARDS & END OF FESTIVAL WRAP PARTY

The Closing Ceremony and VBFF Audience Awards are often our festival’s most anticipated event. It is a time when filmmakers, actors, and other industry professionals come together to celebrate the art of cinema and recognize the festival’s best films. Winning an audience award can be especially meaningful for filmmakers, as it directly reflects how their work has resonated with the public. It can also help to generate buzz and attract attention to their film, which can be crucial for independent filmmakers looking to get their work seen by a wider audience.

The Vero Beach Film Festival is a non-profit arts organization that celebrates independent filmmaking and enriches our community, both culturally and economically.

We love film because it introduces us to new places, touches our hearts, and can help us to find solutions in these challenging times.

We have hosted hundreds of filmmakers from around the globe and screened hundreds of films, from comedies and dramas to documentaries and shorts.

During the festival the coastal town of Vero Beach offers red carpet screenings, well attended parties and filmmaker events that support both the independent and student filmmaker.

And most important of all, the festival gives back to Vero Beach, with free community screenings and thousands of dollars in donations to local charities.
