Seven from Auckland. Down from last year (I think?), which is something at least.

Can't wait for everyone to see a couple of those AK shorts, and can't wait to see the best of the rest of the country's. I know I've gone on about it, but that Lense Flare short really will blow everyone away. (Even if it doesn't win.)

Man I really hope so. It'd be great to see shorts that are better than Mandarena, Pants on Fire, and Dead End Job, etc. Because they're fantastic films, so the shorts that beat them will be really fun to watch.

I'm not kidding, this isn't snark. I hope there are better shorts than these, because I want to see them.
