Each year we endeavor to include influential members of the film and comic industry on our Judges Panel, who have a connection with East Kent in some way, so that increasingly, competition participants are offered an opportunity to show their work professionally and take ownership and pride in their own creative talents.
The Judging panel votes for;
Best Short Film/Comedy Sketch
Best Student Film
The attending audience to the April Fools' Screenings votes for Best Popular Film/Stand-Up from the Just For Laughs and Judges' Shortlist Screenings.
