2006's UKJFF programme cover is generally accepted to be the most popular cover so far. The 10th Festival ran from 4–16 November. The Annual Audience Award was introduced, where the audience could vote for their favourite film during the Festival either online or by ballot card.
Sixty Six opened the Festival at the Curzon Mayfair, and was introduced by director Paul Weiland and attended by leading actors Eddie Marsan and Gregg Sulkin. Moroccan film Marock also had its UK Premiere during the Festival.
