Each film featured here has been watched by four of the following judges – Our thanks to them all for taking the time to watch some great work made by South West based filmmakers – 112 films were send in all together which we’ll be sharing out over the next TEN weeks!
The judges have picked their favourite film which we’ll announce alongside the winner of the audience choice vote when we share the next group of films on Friday 22 May. Both of these films will go through into our final vote off at the end to crown the winner of the best South West film from the past 5 years. If the Judges favourite is also the audience choice winner, the film placing 2nd in the audience choice vote will be put through into the final.
We hope you enjoy watching the films – why not do some online networking and reach out to the Directors, crew and cast of the films you love? It might lead to a collaboration in the future! There’s a comment box at the bottom of the page as well – share your (positive) thoughts on the films!
