Accepting submissions: 2019 UT RTF Longhorn Denius Film Showcase - thru 12/17/18
October 31, 2018
The Radio-Television-Film Department is pleased to announce that we are now accepting submissions for the 2019 UT RTF Longhorn Denius Film Showcase.
The Longhorn Showcase features some of the best recent student films from UT Department of Radio-Television-Film. The department will program a select group of films for a Community Screening at the prestigious 2019 SXSW Film Festival in March, feature them on the RTF Vimeo page, and include them on DVDs and Blu-Rays (on condition of permission from the filmmakers). Additionally, finalists and runner-ups (i.e., films which may be selected but for various reasons are unable to screen at the festival) will receive passes to the SXSW Film Festival.
Films produced for RTF 318 do not qualify.
Films must have been completed for a UT RTF course–other than 318–after December 1, 2017. Note: films made for RTF 336 Special Projects in Radio-TV-Film do qualify.
Films submitted to last year’s Showcase will not be eligible for re-submission.
Multiple submissions are acceptable.
If your film becomes an official selection for the SXSW festival, it cannot also screen in UT’s SXSW Longhorn Showcase. However, we may seek your permission to include it on our online Showcase and future DVD/Blu-Ray compilations.
If your film screens at SXSW in this showcase, other festivals may consider it an official SXSW screening, and it could affect premiere status eligibility. (On the flip side, you can say your film premiered/screened at SXSW.)
You may be asked for a transcript or closed captioning.
Currently enrolled students fill out this online form (separately for each submission): https://utexas.campuslabs.com/engage/submitter/form/start/231651
(Note: Recent graduates can use a different application form.)
You will need to upload your film/s online (password protected is fine) and include the URL/s on the form.
Submissions will be reviewed by a selection committee.
DEADLINE TO APPLY: December 17, 2018*
*Note: this deadline is earlier than in previous years.
