Ivy Film Festsival


My name is Katherine Butera and I am on this year's publicity staff for the Ivy Film Festival. The final submission deadline for the festival is only days away! You can submit your films for the final deadline on February 22nd, 2011. We want to reach as broad an audience of student filmmakers and screenwriters as possible. If you know of any students in a class, department, or student group that might be interested in submitting their work, we would appreciate it if you could forward them this email, or let us know the best way to contact them so we can spread the word.

The Ivy Film Festival is the world’s largest student-run film festival and is a great venue for student filmmakers and screenwriters to show their work. The 2011 Ivy Film Festival will take place from April 18th through the 24th, at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. We are currently open for submissions from all university-level filmmakers.

Just a little bit about us: The Ivy Film Festival started in 2001 as a place for undergraduate and graduate filmmakers to share their work, and interact with other student filmmakers as well as established figures in the film industry. We present selected films and screenplays to a wide audience, and a panel of celebrity judges (including directors, producers, writers, and agents) views the best selections from the festival.

During the festival we will screen the winning films and host readings of the screenplay finalists’ work. All finalists will be notified and invited as VIP guests to the festival. We will provide them with housing, meals, tickets to film screenings, and passes to special networking events, panels, and parties. New this year, the Screenplay Staff will work with the finalists to produce 30-second clips of finalist screenplays to be showcased during the Awards Ceremony.

Here are the details about submitting materials to the festival:
