The NDU administration allocated prize money to winners to encourage future film productions.  Bank of Beirut allocated prize money to the publicly voted daily winners. 
The ministry of tourism and Bank of Beirut Public Vote winners were awarded a fully-covered trip to Cannes Film Festival in May 2019.

Following the announcement of the final results, the winners unanimously expressed their honor to be part of the NDUIFF 12th edition thanking the organizers, cast, crew, and audience. 
The NDUIFF founders announced that the festival will start accepting students film submissions directly to ensure equal opportunities for all of them.
In light of the lack of a winner for the “Student Documentary Film category”  the jury urged participants to dig deeper into the cinematic realization of the Documentary as a film genre. 

Mark your calendars for NDUIFF’s promising 13th edition, which is set to take place starting November 2019.
