Here are the 12 star chamber-esque members of the panel who have been locked in an air-tight room and told that they can’t come out until they have chosen the film that will win the first LUC Short Film Prize. The ten finalists will be screened on Sunday 29th September, 8pm at the Spa Centre Cinema where the winner will be announced at the climax of events.
