Once you're done, drop the flyer into one of the Audience Award buckets as you leave the screening.

You can also post your thoughts and comments here on the website. We recommend the Web Member forums or the page of your chosen film (simply click on the links above). The best overall comment, from Twitter and our website, will give one lucky filmgoer the chance to hand out the Audience Award at the Awards Ceremony!
