JURY & STAFF

All films are pre-screened by a community jury who follow strict guidelines and only advance films that meet Superfest's standards of artistry, portrayal of disability and ingenuity. Superfest’s final-tier jury is made up of a diverse group of filmographers, disability rights advocates, scholars, community organizers and award-winning creatives — all of whom are people with disabilities. The members of our jury watch the submissions and collaborate to choose Superfest’s diverse lineup and awards. If you are interested in being a juror for Superfest 2017, please fill out the contact form and let us know.
