The Mayor of San Sebastián Eneko Goia and José Luis Rebordinos, Director of the San Sebastian Film Festival, have presented the City of Donostia / San Sebastian Audience Award. The economic worth of the City Council's contribution as Sponsor of the Audience Award is €80,000.

This initiative, born on the occasion of the European Capital of Culture and which remains as a legacy of San Sebastian 2016, is a tribute paid by the City Council to the locals, who will decide the prize.

On the other hand, the City Council, together with the Festival, will distribute 1,000 tickets for the Zinemaldia among unemployed and elderly locals from San Sebastián, whose economic situation makes going to the cinema difficult for them.
