Simliar to last year, a few updates have been made in the TOP 20 lineup! Due to schedule conflicts, David Vertesi has had to decline participating in the project. We wish him and Hey Ocean! the best of luck, and hope we might see him re-apply in the future!
So we moved on to our shortlist, which was created by our jury when they chose the TOP 20, and are happy to welcome Sex With Strangers into the mix!
