All entries were reviewed by members of our jury — a hand-picked team of 99 festival alumni, local animators, and super-fans. On average, each film was scored by seven jurors. Scores were averaged, selection was based on rank, and our cutoff was determined by available screen time. Jurors were encouraged to submit their own films, but were not allowed to vote on them. The festival director decided borderline cases and whether longer films merited excluding shorter ones.
THANK YOU to everyone who helped select this year’s films!
