Wanted: Preliminary Judges for Jackson Hole Film Festival

Wanted: Preliminary Judges for Jackson Hole Film Festival

14th March 2017

Do you want to get a feel for what's happening in the business? Do you want to indulge yourself,  watching some of the best films that have been made in the past two years?  And do you want to play your part in making sure the right films and the best people are recognised for their work ? If so, we suggest you get in touch with Jackson Hole Film Festival and apply to be a preliminary judge.  

Although it is a lot of work ( and yes, we've done it !) it is an incredibly empowering thing to do and you will have the bonus of being well informed about the shows everyone is talking about!

More than 150 preliminary judges will screen over 3,500 hours to select this year's finalists. You can earn discounted or complimentary passes to the 2017 Festival, by remotely judging the preliminary rounds in June & July.

There will be one to three rounds of preliminary judging depending on the number of entrants in each particular category.

 

This means each submission will be screened in its entirety by a minimum of 3 preliminary judges, and sometimes as many as 15 judges. All films are viewed via our secure password protected online viewing platform integrated with Vimeo. Finalists will be announced on approximately August 1st and August 15th for the craft categories. All finalist films will then be reviewed by our final jury, immediately prior to the Festival. Winners will be announced at our Awards Gala Celebration on September 28 at the Center for the Arts in Jackson Hole!

In 2015, we had over 150 preliminary judges from all over the world. Preliminary judges are picked based on their knowledge and qualifications in certain categories. A preliminary judge that completes 20-25 hours of viewing receive a complimentary half price pass to the 2017 Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival. A judge that completes 40 hours of viewing will receive a full pass to the Festival.

Judges must have access to a secure internet connection and a computer that can handle online video streaming.
