During the Final B, we will add points for the “Spectator’s choice”* to the current scores, and 2 movies with the highest scores will move to the Final A on Saturday. That means that there will be 8 movies in the big final, where the winners will be chosen after the movie showings.

JUDGING

All films will be judged with 4 criteria/principles in mind:

  1. Storyline and entertainment
  2. The level of surfing
  3. Editing and technical quality of the final film
  4. Spectator’s choice (measured at the finals)

* the “spectator’s choice” is measured by the sound level of the applaus after each movie.
