Tasi’s Ram Mohan Viewer’s Choice Awards (known as Viewer’s Choice Awards before 2019) honours students and professionals. This year, the organisation received an overwhelming number of entries across its three categories – Commissioned Films, Independent Professional Films and Student Films. Experts have reviewed the entries and selected the best of them. These films will be screened at Anifest India, post which the audience will get to vote. The winners will be selected based on the maximum votes for a film.

This year, Anifest has followed a new format with parallel tracks in a new venue and in a new city. Earlier, the event was mostly organised in Mumbai. This new venue will have at least six tracks including exhibits, pitching sessions, workshops, discussions and so on running parallely.
