Shorttakes Film Festival

On behalf of UCLA's Campus Events Commission, we'd like to invite you to participate in our 16th Annual Shorttakes Student FilmFestival. The event showcases short films made by students from all over the nation.

Students are welcome to submit films (live-action or animation/digitalmedia) under 10 minutes long. Multiple submissions are allowed, but each requires its own submission fee of $5. Students are welcome to submit any works created in the last academic year. All submissions must be received by Friday, May 7, 2010. There is a possibility of a deadline extension so check our website for up-to-date information.

UCLA’s Campus Events Commission will select the top submissions to be sent to a judging panel made up of entertainment industry professionals. These judges will select the winners for "Best In Show", among other categories, and students have chances to win otherawards as selected by the audience and our Campus Events Commission. Some recent Shorttakes judges include: Paul Schrader (writer, Taxi Driver and Raging Bull), Daniel Chun (writer, The Simpsons and The Office), Andrew Cohen and Brendan O’Brien (producers, Funny People),and David X. Cohen (writer/producer, The Simpsons and Futurama), among many other industry figures. Many past winners have gone on to work within the industry. The finalists’ films will be screened at our Shorttakes Festival Finale at UCLA on Tuesday, May 25th, 2010.

This is a great opportunity and stepping stone for aspiring filmmakers to show their work. We would appreciate it if you extended this opportunity to your students by spreading the word about Shorttakes to fellow faculty members and to your students directly. Students can find full details on festival and submission guidelines on our website: www.cecshorttakes.com. Any further festival-related questions can be sent to cecshorttakes@gmail.com.
