We will be announcing our 2016 Official Selections first week of December. It has been an extremely difficult task for our Program Director and her team of screeners with the extraordinary submissions we have received from 19 countries around the world.”
Several of the judges have been confirmed already — you can read about them here. The Festival’s opening date has been moved back to Thursday, March 17th, when the Storyhive winners will screen ( Coded and Night Owl High from British Columbia and Hug-O-Gram and Straight to Video: the B-movie Odyssey from Alberta).
