BECOME A JUDGE
CFF welcomes judges from all cultures and parts of the world. Because we are an online festival, all you need is an internet connection, commitment to volunteering, and a love of film! Let us know your availability in the application.
Committed to judging projects on merit (not their own taste)
Contribute ratings and reviews for each film you watch
Judge all assigned projects in a timely manner
Knowledgeable about film and film theory and/or scripts and screenwriting principles with (preferably) 10+ years in the industry
- either professionally working in the industry or teaching on an academic level.
Be reliable with deadlines (all projects must be judged prior to selection notification date)
Time is flexible! Typically you have approx. 4-5 months to complete judgment on all assigned projects. However, all assigned categories/projects must be reviewed by the deadline given to you. We recommend taking a few hours each month for reviewing projects so the reviewing process is less overwhelming at the end of each session and the projects are judged in a timely manner.
