For each cycle, a seasonal jury of film industry professionals will select 3-8 top films from the submission pool to be showcased at the event. The films will be edited in a loop, and screened in a venue ITP. All attendees are given an individual ballot to vote for their favorite film after viewing them on loop during the party.

Southern Documentary Fund is providing a $500 grant and mentorship for the winning filmmaker of the night. The event usually runs from 8 - LATE, the winning filmmaker is announced at 12 AM after the host (Brooke "B" Sonenreich) counts ballots.
