The 2012 GLVFF was juried by Courtney Eady, Ben Hickernell, Gershon Hinkson, Ann Knerr and Michael Kramp. Submitted films were pre-screened by the ArtsQuest Cinema Committee and ArtsQuest Cinema staff, who then selected the films for the festival and put select titles in competition. The jury screened all festival films for the first time at the festival and collaboratively selected the award winners. The GLVFF Audience Award was presented to the film with the highest average score based on 2012 GLVFF audience voting only.
“ArtsQuest thanks everyone who took part in the 2012 Greater Lehigh Valley Filmmaker Festival, including the filmmakers who submitted, the amazing panelists who made up our jury and all the audience members who came out for the screenings,” said Ryan Hill, ArtsQuest Programming Manager in charge of Cinema and Comedy. “This year’s festival was a huge success, and we are already looking forward to beginning work on next year’s event.”
