This year a set of experienced filmmakers, actors and entertainment world executives serve as jurors deciding our award-winners in a variety of categories.  Our VBWFF Juried Awards are presented at Friday evening’s festive Awards Ceremony  during the “Cinema Uncorked! Opening Night Party + Screening.

Films will be judged in part on how well they represent our festival theme “A Life Worth Living.”   All lives are worth living.  Transformational, provocative, compelling in their perspective on life; films that portray what it means to “live life like you mean it.”  Cinematic visions that will both entertain, educate and/or enthuse our audiences.  A film that is thought-provoking; sparks questions without answers, broadens our understanding of  life. . .and WE LOVE IT!!!
