The Stockholm International Film Festivals audience has spoken. Together the festivals audience has voted Mommy, by Xavier Dolan, to win best film.

In collaboration with the film channel Silver, the Stockholm Film Festival lets the audience choose their favorite film. This year’s Silver Audience Award goes to Xavier Dolan’s Mommy. Dolan visited the festival during its first week, and met the audience in an exclusive Face2Face.
