Our Love Shorts contest opened this week. We asked our filmmakers, “How do you define love?” and they answered! Dreamy little flicks about what romance looked like in the ‘80s and ‘90s pitted against short films where a man spends all his time satiating his girlfriend’s craving for human flesh. Yow! Audience Awards is proud to provide a platform where filmmakers can fully express themselves.
We wanted to introduce you to the amazing jury we assembled to judge our top six films to determine our winners!
