Queens World Film Festival Selection Team

Jurors – Past & Present

QWFF screens every film that is submitted to the festival and rates the film based on a variety of categories gauging the film’s adherence to it’s stated synopsis and intended form, quality of the sound, editing, acting and the scores are tallied.  The top scoring 10% of the total submissions for that film’s category are screened again and narrowed down until anywhere from 3- 8 films are moved forward into our hand-picked juries comprised of producers, directors, writers, filmmakers, artists, poets, producers, youth development professionals, activists, youth and community members representing some of New York City’s finest Cultural Organizations. Please meet the individuals who have screened over 6,000 films since the first edition of Queens World in 2011.
