Scripts will be sent anonymously to all juries with no information on the identities of the directors to ensure greatest fairness and transparency.

The 5 directors whose scripts receive the highest scores will be notified by ADFEST to produce the short film of the scripts they submitted. The short films will be debut at ADFEST 2019.

ADFEST will provide return economy airfare, ground transportation, accommodation, and full delegate registration for these 5 selected directors to attend ADFEST 2019 to debut and discuss their short films at the Fabulous Five session on Thursday 21st March 2019.
