Shorttakes Student Film Festival is an annual student short film competition hosted by UCLA's Campus Events Commission. The festival is open to both current undergraduate and current graduate students from colleges and universities nationwide. We accept short films that are under 10 minutes long in all live-action and animation/digital media categories. The top submissions in each category will be judged by a panel of notable members of the film, television, and entertainment industries, who will provide feedback on the films they see. The finalists will be screened at UCLA at the Shorttakes Festival Finale, where the winners will be announced and prizes will be awarded.

Past prizes have included video cameras and checks up to $150. Past judges have included notable members of the film world such as Steven Banks, Jared Hess, and more.

**SUBMISSIONS OPEN MARCH 5 AND ARE DUE APRIL 23**

All students must register and submit a YouTube or Vimeo link of their film through Eventbrite. The first 50 submissions on Eventbrite will have their fee waived. Films not registered through Eventbrite will not be considered.

If providing a private YouTube link, the owner of that link must be able to view the film. If providing a private Vimeo link, please provide the appropriate password. The links are necessary for your films to be viewed by our judging panel. All acquired links and password information will only be shared with the Shorttakes Staff and judges, not with the public.

Following registration, all student filmmakers MUST submit a copy of their short film either in an emailed digital .mp4 format or mailed hard copy DVD/USB.

The film may be mailed to or dropped off at the address listed below. If we are not in the office slide it under the door, promise we will get it!
