Question about Judging

I just wanted to check if the Judges for each region watch every film from their region. And from there create a shortlist from which the finals are chosen.

I have heard rumours that the shortlists are chosen by people who are not the judges, and so I would like clarification from the organisers. To be clear, 48 Hours can organise in whatever way they want. But the methods should be transparent.

The Judging page is a little vague about how shortlists are chosen. It MIGHT be the Judges but the phrasing is... odd.

Getting an explicit statement one way or another would be appreciated.

Cheers

I'd hope Judges at least watch themselves the audience favorites (the top three) from each heat (which for a city like Auckland would add up to an awful lot of films! As we have so many heats). I don't mind whatever other process they use to select the rest, perhaps use assistants to help suggest a bunch more to consider for the short list.
