All of the films in the Perlak section compete for the City of Donostia/San Sebastian Audience Award, sponsored by the San Sebastian City Council and decided by spectators attending the film’s first screening.
The City of Donostia/San Sebastian Audience Award is divided into two prizes: the best film award, with 50,000 euros, and the best European film award, with 20,000 euros.
The City of Donostia/San Sebastian Audience Award goes to the distributor of the film in Spain.
