It’s time for the RESULTS of THAC 2023!!!

Thanks to everyone for taking part and making this the biggest THAC ever with a total of 152 entries!!! Big thanks to the judges for helping me manage to get the results ready within 2 weeks. As we had so many entries this year, we decided to not only rank the Top 15 or 20, but the TOP 25!  However, don’t expect it to be the standard for future THACs or BRAWLs.
You can watch all the entries here.

LET’S GET TO IT!

25th - That's How We Think by PELOKETCHUP

The judging process worked as follows, each judge watched every film. After watching, each judge ranked their personal top 25 films. Each of the judge's lists was then run through a system that utilizes instant run-off voting to create a top twenty-five reflective of all the judges (as all the judges had their own Top 25, there were far more than 25 entries on the overall list, prior to elimination). The judges then adjusted the top twenty-five list as a group until they were satisfied with the outcome.
Judges considered the following when watching the films: originality, production value (animation, set design, cinematography, sound, etc.), story, and creative interpretation of the theme. While the parts of the film were considered, the most important quality the judges looked for is how the film works as a whole.

The judges this year are:
