Clips were shown from each of three finalists in the categories of Animated Comedy, Animated Fantasy & Science Fiction, Animated Horror, Action, Comedy, Fan Film & Parody, Fantasy, Horror, Horror Comedy, Science Fiction, and Feature. The finalists, as well as the winners, are listed below. Best Animated Short and Best Short Film were chosen from the 1st place winners in the genre shorts categories. An Honorable Mention was given to a film that, due to particularly intense competition, did not place first in its category.
