Austrian Film Award : Best Director

Winner and nominee in the Best Director category since the Austrian Film Award was first presented in 2011.

The award winner is determined in a two-stage process. First, all full members of the professional groups ("sections") of directing, production and screenwriting nominate their preferred directing services in a secret written vote. Nominations are given to up to three individual achievements - those filmmakers who can collect the most votes are considered nominated. The winner is determined by a second ballot in which all voting members of the Academy of Austrian Films take part. The filmmaker with the highest number of votes is the winner of the Austrian Film Prize.
