What about Wildcards? they don't get disqualified for uploading if they are chosen as one?

Wellington City Finalists and Nominees

So we can upload our films if we aren't on that list? or are there still other prizes they are eligible for?

WHEN WILL THE FILMS BE SHOWN OF TV?

in reply to treefrog:

Absolutely I am grateful for the work everyone puts in, it's just in previous years there has been more information available for us, such as dates for when things are happening.

Searching the website for even a timeline and you get nothing, just a countdown timer on the main page, which at this point is saying "000 D 00 H 00 M 00 S" until the grand finalists are crowned...

Once again, I love entering this competition, we always enjoy ourselves on the shoot weekend and going to the heats/finals. We definitely appreciate the amount of work that has to be done behind the scenes, as with the large amount of teams i could definitely see even just sorting out to watch all the films would take plenty of work.

A TV Channel as the Naming rights sponsor yet no TV coverage? does anyone else get the feeling of a serious lack of organisation this year?

Dates?

So Grand finalists have nothing to do with city winners? any team could be in the grand finals even if they weren't a finalists in their city? I was always under the impression it was the City winners all went on to the grand finals plus the Peter Jackson Wildcards?

Dates?

in reply to Astroblu:

Aren't the grand finalists just the City winners + the wildcards? this is another area where the website need a re-vamp, there is no information about any of this that I've found

Dates?

So the countdown timer on the home page is pretty much a big waste of time then? it says grand finalists are announced in what I work out to be the 1st July?

Dates?

Is there even anywhere on this site that has any dates/information about where/when/what the grand finals are/is/when being shown? a countdown timer is all I can find anywhere

Ratings site: Current top Film?

in reply to Nick Burridge:

In answer to the original question, the 'top film' isn't calculated by number of ratings per se, it's done using the IMDB algorithm:

W = (Rv + Cm) / (v + m)

Ahh, that makes sense, kinda, well I'll just take your word for it anyway...

Ratings site: Current top Film?

I feel the reviews are great, they let you know where you could have improved even if some do it in a brutal way. The only problem with the review system is exactly what Ant said, either family give a great review, or only a couple of people who were in your heat and have seen your film can write a review until the end of comp so maybe a "trusted" reviewer or only having reviews available in the screening room?
We always look forward to reading steelpotato's reviews, he just knows what to look for and how to put it down into text.

Ratings site: Current top Film?

It appears that the "Current top film" on the ratings board is the one with the most amount of individual ratings? it seems like it would make more sense to me to have it as the film with the highest star rating instead, what do you think?
