Prescreeners are hard to predict? More like the crowd in general! I sure as hell know that what I pick for winners each year never seems to match up with the crowd's choice.

Which makes this contest exciting for everyone :-) Anything can happen.

The trends/biases of crowds are much easier to read. It doesn't necessarily make contests more predictable, but it makes the end results less baffling.

Overflow screenings are Friday and Saturday mornings this year, instead of just one day (Sunday morning). Yay for schedules!

Man, every year I look at that and think "that would be pretty interesting", and every damn year it gets thrown up against something I can't skip.
