Political Film Society Award for Democracy

The Political Film Society Award for democracy is given out each year to a film that promotes, educates, and raises the awareness level of the public in the specific areas of democracy and freedom. This award has been handed out by the Society since 1988. Depending on the number of movies that qualify, sometimes only one film is nominated for this award, but as many as seven have been nominated in years past.

The film that first won this award was The Milagro Beanfield War in 1988 that was directed by Robert Redford. The only other award nominated in 1988 against The Milagro Beanfield War was Stand and Deliver. The award, as with any other Political Film Society Award, can go to a mainstream film, independent film, or even an international film. The Political Film Society looks at a broad selection of movies before it nominates them for an award.
