Auckland Shortlist

in saying that - I understand you are asking for a list of judging criteria - which i think is a fair question to ask for some transparency around that if you are genuinely curious - but i do think that outright stating that something deserves a spot over the judges picks is perhaps not a great call -unless you have seen the other films and are prepared to back that statement up in the conversation that can ensue.

While i know you probably feel that its unfair that a film that you may have personally supported did not make it on to the shortlist, there are a group of people celebrating their own inclusion and to call that into question in a public forum is maybe not super chill.

Auckland Shortlist

My guess would be the judges watch all of the films and then decide which ones they think deserve to be on the shortlist based on if they thought they were good films.

I would wonder if you have seen every other film in the competition if not at least the ones on the shortlist to be making a call that bold?
