    Hi Charlotte

    thanks for your question, due to the 2nd wave of the pandemic, the 2020 ESFF has been postponed but will run as soon as the cinemas in Edinburgh re open.
    The award winners for 2020 have been decided by our juries although the announcement is embargoed and they will be announced on the final night when the 2020 edition runs.

    We're hoping this will be in late January or February.

    Thanks for your interest in the festival and hoping you are keeping safe and well!
