Catalyst International Film Festival is proud to announce the launch of its new National Student Short Film Award. This award is designed to recognize and celebrate the work of emerging student filmmakers from across the country.
The festival is committed to promoting diversity and inclusion in the film industry, and this award is a key part of that mission. The National Student Short Film Award is open to all students currently enrolled in a film program at a recognized educational institution. Films must be no longer than 20 minutes, including titles and credits, and must be submitted through FilmFreeway.
The winning film will be screened at the festival and the filmmaker will receive SOME AMAZING PRIZES we are currently cooking up!
