The best documentary film was A Plastic Ocean. The best foreign film was FRANTZ. As an audience member who has seen the films, you have the opportunity to cast a vote for your favorites, even if it doesn’t agree with the director’s choice awards. Perhaps you would have chosen the movie Breathe or agreed with the audience and chose Wabooz as the best animated film.
