Delta Film Award

Delta Film Award
The original Delta Film Award. Its current location is not known.

The Delta Film Award is presented annually at the Festival of Fantastic Films in Manchester, England.

Shortly after the 2004 event, British freelance journalist Steve Green assumed the role of administrator; he'd been a judge since the early 1990s.[1] Other judges have included the film director Norman J. Warren, movie journalists M J Simpson, Calum Waddell and Tris Thompson, horror author Stephen Gallagher, former Critical Wave reviewer Ray Holloway and actor David Hess. In addition, both Holloway and the horror author Joel Lane have assisted with the shortlisting process.

The award now attracts international interest, with entries regularly from as far afield as Europe and the United States, the Far East and Scandinavia, Australia and the Middle East. Although the majority of winners have been British, reflecting the gerographic make-up of the entries, many non-UK films have received special commendations in recent years.

Unfortunately, there appears to be no central record of the winners prior to 1998, although they are reportedly listed on a plaque attached to the trophy (the whereabouts of which is no longer known by the Festival organisers).

  • There is no list currently known to the administrator of winners prior to 1995.
  • The 1995 Delta Film Award was awarded to joint winners, one of which was Blast Films (UK), for their film I Was a Fifty Foot Führer.
  • The recipients of the 1996 and 1997 competitions are not known by the current administrator.
