Magnus Isacsson Award
The Magnus Isacsson Award was created to honour the beloved Montreal documentary filmmaker, who passed away in the summer of 2012. This award is presented to a socially conscious work by an emerging Canadian director. The Magnus Isacsson Award is presented by the ARRQ, Cinema Politica, DOC Québec and Main Film.

Student Award
The RIDM student jury was inaugurated in 2014. The jury of five students from cegeps presents an award to a film from the Canadian Competition. The winning film will be shown in the participating cegeps. This initiative is part of the RIDM’s Youth Program, which includes a variety of outreach and awareness activities. It is supported by the CSN and Telefilm Canada.

Women Inmates’ Award
The Inmates’ Jury is made up of five inmates of the Joliette Institution, the only federal women’s penitentiary in Quebec. This initiative, a first in Quebec when it launched at the RIDM in 2011, is produced in partnership with Telefilm Canada, the Quebec chapter of the Elizabeth Fry Society and the Entente sur le développement culturel de Montréal – a project supported by the Ministère de la Culture et des Communications and the Ville de Montréal.
