Auckland Finalist Predictions!

Here's mine. Obviously I didn't attend every heat, but I did get to a couple. So here's 4 films I think that are city finalist worthy.

1. Chillybox
2. Bald Faced Cheek
3. Brothers in Crime
4. Costa Rica

What's your picks?

If there's 13 films, which team should be in there? Who should take the final spot?

I'd love to see 16 films make it this year. 16 films at 5 minutes max is the same length of time as the 12 films from last year at 7 minutes max. Auckland has a lot more teams competing and there's always some good quality films that miss out on the finals.

Based on the slow announcement of the music sponsor, they might mean the finalists are announced after the Auckland finals have been held.

And it only gets better. Seeing your movie, the one you put so much effort into, on the big screen at the finals is fantastic. Not being certain if you're going to win an award as finalists are being read out is also an amazing stress. 8 years of hard work has gone into this one mate, good luck!
