UCLA Shorttakes Film Festival
February 27, 2017
On behalf of UCLA's Campus Events Commission, we'd like to invite your students to participate in our 23rd Annual Shorttakes Student Film Festival. The event showcases short films made by undergraduate and graduate school students from all over the world.
Students are welcome to submit films (live-action, animation/digital media, documentary, music videos) under 10 minutes long. Multiple submissions are allowed, but each requires its own submission fee. The first 50 submissions to the festival are free, then all following submissions are $10. The deadline to submit is April 21st, 2017.
Here is the Eventbrite page to register for the festival:
UCLA’s Campus Events Commission will select the top submissions to be sent to a judging
panel made up of entertainment industry professionals. These judges will select the winners for "Best In Show", among other categories, and students have chances to win other awards as selected by the audience and our staff. Some recent Shorttakes judges
include: Nick Offerman (actor, Parks and Recreation), Eli Roth (director/producer/actor, Hostel and Inglorious Basterds), Andrew Cohen (producer, Project Runway), Brendan O’Brien (writer/producer, The 40-Year Old Virgin), and David X. Cohen (writer/producer, The Simpsons and Futurama), among many other industry figures.
Prizes for the top films include a year-long subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud, cash prizes, and more. Many past winners have gone on to work within the industry, such as Shane Acker, the director of 9. The finalists will be screened at our Shorttakes Festival Finale at UCLA on May 23rd, 2017. All students and their families are welcome to attend.
This is a great opportunity and stepping stone for aspiring filmmakers to show their work. We would appreciate it if you extended this opportunity to your students by spreading the word about Shorttakes to fellow faculty members and to your students directly. Students can find full details on the festival and any submission guidelines on our website: www.cecshorttakes.com. Any further festival-related questions can be sent to email@example.com.
