The Jury comprised Academy Award®-winning film producer, education luminary and CIFF Patron, Lord David Puttnam; award-winning filmmaker Carmel Winters; and filmmaker / Head of Doc Station Berlinale, Zeynop Güzel. 

The Jury decision was announced in front of a sold-out auditorium in The Everyman for the Irish premiere of All Of Us Strangers on Sunday November 19th.
