AltcineActionEvery internet user can give a vote for a movie title, but he can also vote for several film titles at the same time. The critiques and reviews that altcineAction’s visitors will write, along with their rating are the key factor that is going to give their favorite film a chance to win the great prize on this year’s online film festival, altcineAction. If you want, you could rate, criticize and review 2 or more films. The people that will review more than 2 films automatically enter the competition for the Best Film Critic.

That’s why you must not wait until the last minute and vote as soon as possible.

Voting rules:

– Voting will be conducted online and open to all internet users.
– Technical provision has been made so that multiple votes cannot be cast from the same IP address.
– Voters will be able to review the film and explain their choices. Vote categories could include aesthetic criteria, technical criteria, plot or story, I am the director’s mom, and so on. This aims at preventing people from casting votes for just one film and opening up films to the largest possible number of viewers.
– In the event of a tie, the film with the best-documented reasons for its selection will be chosen.
