On hearing the news, director Craig McCall said "I am seriously proud that Cameraman won the Audience Award at Keswick. When I walked into the Studio for the Q&A and saw it was full I was so surprised. I loved the festival and we will be telling people about it."

Cameraman scored 91.67%, followed by Waste Land with 87.8% and Animal Kingdom with 82.69%. Interesting to see a couple of artistic documentaries heading the list. Those were the top films in competition for the Audience Award, but Trainspotting, Frankenstein Sings and P'tang, Yang, Kipperbang were popular too - and The Tempest was narrowly behind Animal Kingdom.
