25 Under 25 Fest
November 28, 2017
I'm a current student at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and the founder of the 25 Under 25 Fest, a new film festival along the Central Coast of California. The 25 Under 25 Fest is a film festival based in SLO that will highlight young filmmakers under the age of 25, who are making films under 25 minutes. It is open to all California residents and also students going to school in California. We aim to produce an environment that encourages youth art, innovative ideas, and lasting connections between young filmmakers.
I am contacting you today to hopefully convince you to submit your projects. We know that your school has an established film/animation department and we hope to have students represent UT Austin at the fest. We truly just want to encourage youth film and youth arts by highlighting the accomplishments of young people. Here is the link to the submission site: https://filmfreeway.com/festival/25Under25Fest. The submission deadline is January 10.
The film fest is completely free to enter for students, but will soon only be $5. It’s an incredible opportunity for students to showcase their work on a larger platform. The filmmakers will also be accommodated with 2 night lodging and food while they’re in San Luis Obispo. They will be staying in log cabins by the beautiful Central Coast beach. We will also be giving away $2,500 in cash prizes to the top 3 films. This is an incredible opportunity for college filmmakers to participate in a legitimate film festival. I’m hoping that there are a few students who are from California and would be interested in submitting films.
