Our film evaluation process.

At SAFF, our film evaluation process relies on a rubric that grades, Creativity, Direction, Writing, Cinematography, Performances, Production Value, and Sound/Music. Our judges are curated from working professionals with a background in the fine arts. Each submission is graded by multiple judges. The final score is then evaluated by the program director and reviewed for standards that exemplify the core principles of SAFF before being programmed.
