Outrageous Fortune actress Robyn Malcolm has been named as a judge for the inaugural New Zealand's Best Short Film Competition.

Malcolm is joined on the judging panel by filmmaker Sima Urale, and Madman Entertainment representative Michael Eldred.

The group will judge the six finalists' films, which will be shown on Saturday as part of the New Zealand Film Festival.

The finalists were narrowed down from 12 by international filmmaker Roger Donaldson. 
Festival programmers Bill Gosden and Michael McDonnell viewed 109 submissions to prepare the shortlist.

Up for grabs is a $5000 Madman Entertainment Jury Prize and a $3000 Friends of the Civic Award. 

Auckland and Wellington audiences will also vote for the winner of the Audience Vote award.

The winners will be announced the following Sunday when the film festival closes. 

The first viewing of the films on Saturday is sold out but tickets are available for screenings on Monday.
