Just like at previous festival editions, in 2014 fifteen first or second feature films competed for one of the three Hivos Tiger Awards Competition.
Of the fifteen nominated directors, three will go home with a Hivos Tiger Award and prize money of €15.000. Besides the prize, they also gain international recognition and attention. As such, the competition knows only winners. The Hivos Tigers Awards are that one necessary push into the right direction for many up-and-coming filmmakers.
