What happens next?

Posted 16th April 2021

All Regional Finalists - Please hold off posting your film online until the 15 Grand Finalists and 3 Wildcards are revealed on Monday 25th April (after the Auckland Final).

The Grand Final will be held on Saturday 22nd May in Auckland.

Grand Finalists - these are the top 15 films from around the country, not the winners in each region. In fact, teams who win in a region may not make it in. Alternatively, teams who don't place in their Regional Final may also make it in.

Wild cards - This year Ant Timpson will choose 3 films to enter as 'Wild Cards' for the Grand Final. These can be chosen from anywhere.

Grand Final nominations - If a team wins a category in their region, then they are nominated for that award in the Grand Final.
