Apart from reviews i sometimes decide to see a film according to its awards, but not all film-awards fulfill my expectations from a good film. However there are some awards which i absolutely follow-consider, and i wonder which awards are influential for you to see that movie without considering reviews-ratings or even info?

My Favourite Awards:
--Cannes awards ( meanwhile Uzak - as a Turk and fan of Nuri Bilge Ceylan i m proud of Uzak- got Grand Jury Prize)
--Sundance festival awards
--Independant spirit awards
--Online film critics society awards
--Oscars ( yes sometimes they somehow choose good films)
--Istanbul film festival ( Golden Tulip )

Well, I'd never see a film purely because it had won a prize at a particular festival, but the ones I tend to trust most are the Cannes Festival and the BAFTA awards.
