We can now reveal the judges for this year’s short science film competition for the science fiction category!
Once we have received all your entries, we will be passing on shortlisted films to the three talented people below. They’ll be deciding the winners!

The cosmic shed was listed as one of the Guardian’s favourite podcasts 2018 and has featured guests like Tim Peake, Nichelle Nichols, Marina Sirtis and Benedict Cumberbatch.
Andrew is also the host of the Physics World Stories podcast, a writer/reviewer for Physics World and a science film maker himself.

Andrew has done pretty much every aspect of sound post-production over the years and been nominated for almost everything. Despite not actually winning many awards, Andrew remains the best re-recording mixer in his price range.
He’s currently Vice-chair of the Association of Motion Picture Sound (AMPS), plus he’s probably the only re-recording mixer ever to have played the sousaphone at Glastonbury! This year, he’ll be judging both categories of our competition.
