Shouldnt be hard. At the simple level you need one rule per VLAN.
I am assuming only one vm per vlan and that you can key on something
in the header.

Again assuming something in the header is going to say "this packet
is allowed to go to this VM", a MAC address, an IP src/destination
etc, correct?

Assuming they are not already stripped at vnetx,
you could write a very simple action (probably one page of code) to 
strip vlans and do everything at br0;
Your filter finds them at br0, your action strips them and pipes to 
another action that redirects to the correct device. i.e in unix speak:
filter at br0 for VMx | strip vlan tag | redirect to vnetx

At the very minimal you need to identify those packets and that depends 
where you want to deploy the policy.
If you deploy at the br device, you will see the raw packet i.e the vlan
header wont be stripped.
i.e youd have to enter some u32 rule with protocol "protocol 802.1q"
If you deploy at each vnetx device assuming it is a vlan device, you 
wont see the vlan headers and you'll have to key on something else on 
the header "protocol ip"
