FILM CHALLENGE THEME:

Our theme this year is "Dark Academia." This theme can be present in aesthetic, narrative subject matter, tone, and/or setting!

Accepting all types from bleak literary themes of oppression, death, and existentialism—to friendship, resourcefulness, joy, and the beauty of life. An aesthetic that revolves around classic literature, the pursuit of self-discovery, and a general passion for knowledge and learning. 

RUN-TIME: 4 MIN (MAX)

GENRE: Whatever you want! As long as you follow our Theme 🙂

NOTE: We will accept films that were made prior to the challenge that fits the theme — however it will be stated as a pre-made film and will be noted during judging status.

FREE REGISTRATION BY: SEPTEMBER 1ST, 11:59 PM PST

FINAL FILM DELIVERIES: OCTOBER 1ST, 11:59 PM PST

This registration form is FREE. Only films that are OFFICIAL SELECTIONS will be issued a $20 Filmmaker Fee in order to screen at our festival.
