Inside Film Awards

Last updated

The Inside Film Awards (now known as the IF Awards) is an annual awards ceremony and broadcast platform for the Australian film industry, developed by the creators of Inside Film Magazine, Stephen Jenner and David Barda, and originally produced for television by Australian Producer Andrew Dillon. The awards are determined by a national audience poll, which differentiates it from the Australian AACTA Awards, which are judged by industry professionals.

The event is held in November each year, and is broadcast on SBS television and showtime movie channels. The IF Awards were first held in 1999, and until 2006 were also known as the Lexus Inside Film Awards, in recognition of its principal sponsor Lexus. Sponsorship since then has included multiple broadcast and event partners, with the new naming rights partner for 2011 being Jameson Irish Whiskey. In 2011, the Jameson IF Awards were held in November in Sydney again.

As of 2012, the IF Awards have been 'on hold'. [1]
