The AHRC Research in Film Awards is judged by a panel of senior academics, journalists and luminaries from the film industry. Each year they have to whittle down the entries to a shortlist of five films per category.
The judges look for high quality films which bring arts and humanities research to a wider audience, and assess each submission against the requirements of the chosen category.
Watch our chair of the judging panel, Jan Dalley, talk about the importance of the awards which celebrates film as a research tool and a vital art form.
