CALLING ALL STUDENT FILMMAKERS
Submissions close in TWO WEEKS
The Cambridge International Student Film Festival
Be a part of the most ambitious student film festival and submit your film here.
Don’t miss out – make sure you get your submissions in by 15th October 2017! Be sure to submit your film as soon as possible as only the first 500 entries will be judged!
Entry is FREE and open to all STUDENT FILMS UNDER 20 MINUTES long. Please read through our SUBMISSIONS GUIDELINES, which have changed slightly since last year!
There are several things which make Watersprite stand out; one is how international we are! Last year, we received submissions from over 40 countries around the world! We flew filmmakers from Iceland, Turkey and Siberia to Cambridge for the festival weekend. We want this year to be even bigger and better, but for this, WE NEED YOUR SHORTS. All nominees will be offered travel bursaries to help you get to Cambridge for the Awards Ceremony in February 2018.
We offer various technical awards, meaning that your film’s technical excellence is more likely to be recognised! These include prizes for editing, cinematography, production design and much more! There is also the unique Filmmaker of the Future prize, which is awarded to a film that tries to make a difference. The winner of this award is sent to Cannes Film Festival to participate in the producers’ workshop.
A testimony from Pietro, winner of the ‘Filmmaker of the Future’ prize at last year’s festival, who got to travel to Cannes as a result…
“Hi, my name is Pietro, and I’m a documentary filmmaker. I would definitely recommend that any of you should apply […] because this experience really gave me the motivation and the ambition to go forward with this career and do all I can to see my dreams come true.”
We can’t wait to receive your submissions and watch your films! Check out our website and social media accounts for more information!
We’d love to hear from you and your students too so don’t hesitate to get in contact by replying to this email. If you have any questions, we’d be more than happy to answer them!
With very best wishes,
The Watersprite Awards Team
