The week-long festival presented the awards in three different categories- International, National and Kashmiri. In the International section, Bangladesh won two awards according to reports. Tauquir Ahmed's Haldaa bagged Best Feature Film (Fiction) award while Zuairijah Mou won Best Short Fiction for her film Bhoy - The Fear of Silence. Best Film in the Kashmiri category was presented to Aasiya Zahoor for her film The Stitch (Teab).
