The 2017 Student Film Competition sponsored by Canon will showcase a collection of middle and high school and university films as submitted by filmmakers from around the globe.
Shorts will be selected for inclusion in the 2017 Global Film Festival by a panel of William & Mary film faculty and students. The filmmakers who submit the top films in each of four categories – Middle/High School Documentary, Middle/High School Fiction, University Documentary, and University Fiction – will be awarded Canon camera prize packages. Filmmakers do not need to be present at the February screenings to win.
Student films were accepted for the competition from November 1 to December 15. The submission window is now closed – winners of the competition and all shorts to be screened will be announced in early 2017!
