The Jury is made up of film makers, film experts, film critics, film lovers, and media personnel with original and diverse points of view.
Films are selected from both the documentary and dramatic categories to receive a range of awards, although it is possible to conduct the selection process by teleconference, the preferred approach would be a face-to-face meeting of the Committee to allow for optimum back-and-forth discussion and deliberation during the selection process.
The Grand Jury plays a critical role in ensuring the success and reputation of Golden Movie Awards, its role will be to evaluate nominations, vote on the winner from the pool of nominations, and ensuring that the process is fair and unbiased.
The Committee will be independent, but supported by the organization administering the prize. The Selection Committee’s operations are beyond reproach for the Golden Movie Awards to become the highly prestigious Awards for Africa. All awards are based on the merit of the nomination.
The Selection Committee may decide not to select any nominees, or to select fewer nominees than the number of awards available, in particular award category/categories. In that case, no award, or a reduced number of awards, will be presented for the particular category/categories.
