We appreciate all the wonderful films that were sent in and we hope to see all of you at the festival this year even if you were not selected to screen.
It has been a very hard year to judge. Our judges were down to the last moment on deciding which films would be selected for this years programming.
Because of this we have a diverse cross section of films from around the world and we hope we have a wonderful selection for you to come and see.
Each film is previewed by at least five of our industry professionals in filmmaking, writing, directing, distribution, creative executives, festival director and representatives. They go through a 10 point system of grading on production, concept, delivery, story telling, film style, acting and direction. We pride ourselves that all our judges are industry executives actively creating all forms of media in television and film.
Once the film has gone through the basic round of screening it then goes to the judging committee for the final decision and then programmed.
This is one way we preserve the process and make sure that all the films are viewed fairly.
