Howard Stern, Chicago Sun-Times film critic Richard Roeper, director Todd Phillips, thesp Richard Belzer and Stern sidekick Robin Quivers comprise the jury awarding the prizes at the inaugural Howard Stern Film Festival.
Culminating April 27 in Gotham, the fest, an ode to Stern’s Sirius satellite radio show, will feature five-minute films about Stern-related storylines.
Judges will choose three fest winners from 2,137 short film entries.
Winners will be awarded an aggregate of $25,000 in cash. Finalists and other notable projects will run exclusively on Howard TV On Demand following the event.
