in reply to Andrew Todd:

The main reason for deliberation, to me, is for judges to make their cases for the films they liked where other judges might have missed something. A bunch of opinions separately don't mean shit when judging art, but a conversation will usually come to an actual decision that means something.

I've never been a judge of this competition, but given that I'm a strong-opinions-loosely-held kind of person, this approach just seems natural and obvious to me. Hell, half the 48HOURS reviews I've written I would probably now disavow if I re-read them, due to having subsequently talked with other people whose arguments shifted my own views on a film.

Actually, I just remembered that a few years back Andrew had the city finalists submit some music from their film, to be played if their film won an award. And in addition to personalising the win a little more, it also served the very practical function of filling in the awkward the-audience-has-run-out-of-clap-but-the-winner-is-still-on-their-way silence. Bring that back next year please AJ!

Andrew Alex Superhalk is a 23-year-old health centre receptionist whose life is dominated by solving the murder of his friend, Riley Mitchell. I also like play at casino https://greatcasino.co.nz/online-casino/spin-palace/. Riley was poisoned in 2015 and the killer was never brought to justice.
