A total of 14 films were selected for an online voting process on www.gotspot.com where the films received 58,000 views and got over 30,000 votes. The 6 films with the highest number of online votes were subsequently reviewed by an esteemed panel of judges in New York at the Action Center to End World Hunger, on December 21st.
