“We are honoured to have Mark Berry return again to the judging platform for the GSFA programme. Mark brings a vast breadth of expertise and experience in film & music,” said Aquino. “We are thankful to the 2022 esteemed jury for making the time to celebrate our renewed commitment to artistically ambitious filmmaking within the short category and thrilled the jury members will be able to share their wealth of knowledge with this year’s filmmakers who are creating groundbreaking short form cinema. We can’t wait for the jury to join us in Cannes in May, 2022 and be a part of GSFA’s history.”

Berry states “It is a thrill to return to the GSFA festival under any circumstances, but it is with great relish and anticipation I look forward to jury duty. I am honoured to be named to the 2022 jury. The GSFA has always been a festival that showcases bold and daring short film cinema on a global stage. Its commitment to celebrating small independent short films has had such a significant impact on my career and many others. I look forward to seeing the movies and working with my fellow jury members and Andres Aquino to celebrate the best of this year’s short film cinema from all over the world.”
