Each month, the submitted projects are screened and judged by a team of in-house and invited experts from the local filming industry. We invite monthly film boffins and experts to join us for our viewing of the best shorts the world has to offer. We try to give as many films as possible a chance for screening and judging.

    Sorry, can't comment. Wasn't asked for copy and didn't see an event schedule, as per other festivals which selected the film, so assumed the event might not have gone ahead.
