Audiences Loved Urban – Film Makes Top 20 Audience Award List

from a tweet by @Crissyinwm, here

Right up there at #7. This is a credit that, if it remains constant, should be a help for the future of the film. It’s also pretty amazing considering the small venues.

        • I don’t know. Maybe someone who was there can tell us whether they were asked to fill out anything in the theater. One thing is certain – not everyone who voted saw every film screened, so I have no idea.

          • We were given a form , a paper sheet as we entered and it had ratings at the top, ie big numbers and you would just wrip the corner off for what rating you gave it. So, it is definitely by numbers which i find unfair as the venue for Urban was small! Also to specify venue, singular! They hadn’t brought the forms to Chapel FM for the Sat screenings, otherwise the number for Urban would have been much higher! As said by numbers me thinks which make it great to be at 7 considering the other ones above screened in much bigger venues. But it is a good sign nevertheless 🙂 Just wish we’d had them Sat too as it would have boosted the number significantly.

            • Thanks for adding this information to the mix. That being the case, it’s amazing Urban made to it to #7 so far – but then, we have to remember that the bulk of the audience were Richard Armitage fans, and in reality, that makes a difference. But on paper, no one will probably know that down the road. Wonder why they didn’t have the ballots for the larger screening?

              • oh the Hyde Park cinema was the larger screening 🙂 but the 2 on Sat would have added to the numbers and maybe put it even higher up, nice in any case we got to do this and it show at 7 🙂

              • @Hariclea, this comment will probably be out of order, but if I understand you – theballots were given at the larger screening, not the two small ones? Also, is there a way for attendees to still vote?

              • Going to reply to this one as the lower one doesn’t allow reply button any more 🙂 yes the ballots were given at the larger screening in Hyde Park picture house, must had had about 200-300 seats, it was really big inside for that type of cinema. Unfortunately no online voting, voting was on the form only, ie the paper bit as they collected them directly at the end of the screening as we were exiting the place (to make sure it is the reaction of the people who have actually seen it i guess 🙂

  1. I was at the Sunday screening. We were given a flyer with the numbers 1-5 across the top and asked to mark our score for the film. I gave it the top mark and so did everyone I spoke to that day.

  2. Thanks for that. I thought I heard him say something about a leaflet. Still curious about how LIFF29 comes up with a ratings list, but no matter really, because I think the award will be a useful tool.

  3. To have a rating already it has to be based on something like average rating for each film rather than relative rating across films. If so, it will likely move down as other films are shown, but I bet it remains on the Top 20 list. Any positive feedback is good.

  4. Even if there are films shown in bigger venues, theoretically the floor is open because the audience is asked to award marks out of 5, with 5 being the top mark. So a crowd-magnet such as ‘Brooklyn’ which is playing in a big venue might not receive top marks from all viewers. I presume they add up all the numbers. And possibly then even divide them by number of people attending the screening? That would be fair, I suppose.
