We are delighted to welcome Tim from Utah Saints, another fantastic example of Leeds talent, to our judging panel especially as he is on the road so much at the moment and… in the studio!  He joins Rebekka Kill, Mark Hubbard and Nicola Greenan as well as Pier Van Tijn, Alan Raw and Ash Kollakowski!  It’s a great panel.

Volunteers Needed Too:

If you are neither a filmmaker nor a musician there is still room for you to help out.  We will need all kinds of volunteers during the production phase and also for the launch event.  Express your interest and we will be in touch.
