The SMPTE-HPA Student Film Festival focuses on technology, and students should ideally major in an area that emphasizes engineering, science, advanced technologies, or fundamental theories associated with motion-imaging, sound, metadata, and workflows.
Entries from all parts of the world are encouraged. Submissions for the 2017 SMPTE-HPA Film Festival are due no later than 30 June.
To be eligible, students must have completed four courses toward their major course of study and be in good academic standing. There is no fee to enter, and SMPTE or HPA membership is not a prerequisite for submission of a film. However, students may join as student members of SMPTE for just $10 or for free if this is their first year of membership when they apply via the Student Membership Challenge Fund.
