        • accepted into the Festival
        • goes on to be viewed by the preselection jury

    2. If the short film does not meet the requirements:
        • its status is updated to "Disqualified"
  3. The accepted movies are viewed by a team of dedicated preselection judges, consisting of various people with different media background (film makers, screenwriters, directors, musicians, journalists, actors & actresses).
