UC's iconic student film competition is back!  

To be part of student filmmaking immortality, all you have to do is create a film that is:

  • 1 - 5 minutes long
  • Original (although feel free to rip off some other film...)
  • Made mostly by UC students (hey, a bit of outside help is OK)
  • Submitted by 8 May 2017

That's pretty much it. The world is your paper mache oyster!

Screening and Awards

We're aiming to screen EVERY film produced at our big awards night. So you'll definitely be able to tell your mum you're a 'filmmaker'. We'll also be giving out REAL AWARDS. You can just taste the Instagram likes...

Small print

You can use any camera you want to make the film. Your dad's flash RED. Your brother's handicam. Your dog's iPhone. All that matters is that the film is (somewhat) watchable. And listenable. Think about audio. PLEASE think about audio...

You may be able to borrow some gear from the UCSA. Just ask.

Films must be submitted to the UCSA via Dropbox, or on a USB drive. It's OK, we'll give you the USB drive back.

Ideally, the final format would be an .mp4 or .mov - but if it plays on VLC, you should be fine.

Need some help in post? Just ask.

UCSA reserves the right to remove any film that is deemed too offensive, or just plain horrible to watch/listen to. Our standards are pretty low. If in doubt, ask us first.
