  1. All films submitted to the Edinburgh Short Film Festival are watched twice by different members of the selection committee, films are picked on merit, creativity, and on how all aspects of the film work together to create a strong work. I can't speak for how other festivals operate so can't comment on whether they all operate with integrity but from our point of view, we not only watch all films submitted but also send acknowledgement emails to every submitter, so they are aware their entry has been received and will be assessed. From our perspective it makes no sense not to watch the entries because our aim is to become recognised for strong programming and in order to curate a strong programme, you need to ensure all the films submitted are assessed. Star name doesn't necessarily assist the film but won't do it any harm, usually a star name is at least a decent actor/actress though!
