THANK YOU FOR
// SUBMISSIONS OPENING SOON!
Student shorts, documentaries, animation, and music videos from around the world! And to top it all off, we have a new home in Phoenix, Arizona!
The Awards Ceremony rounds out the event, with several awards up for grabs and all films in the Official Selection competing for a variety of nominations and awards.
Being close to LA, we have a number of film investors, distributors, producers and talent agents in attendance at our festival each year, so this is the perfect festival to not only get exposure at one of the coolest cinema chains in the country, but also make important contacts in the industry.
Our festival prides itself on film-maker communication and ensuring you have the most enjoyable time possible at the event, so you can be sure that if you make it into the Official Selection you will be kept up to date every step of the way.
High Quality Screening? You bet! We work with DCP's and high res files - and can even create DCP's for your film, so that your work shows in the best possible quality.
If you've made a Student Film, we want to see it! Submit today!
The American Student Film Festival is based in Phoenix, Arizona and is hosted at the prestigious Alamo Drafthouse!
Film-makers are invited to participate in Q&A's at their screenings, receiving free tickets for themselves, cast and crew, as well as free custom give aways based on their films!
The Alamo is known for its drinks and menu available throughout the screenings and we customize the menu for each selection of films screenings - so if you ever fancied a $5 dollar shake, or your own custom burger named after the one in your movie - here's the chance for it to become a reality! We tailor at least one item on the menu to each film selected!
Best Short Film - Best Documentary - Best Music Video
Best Animation - Best New Screenplay
Best Director - Best Music - Best Actor - Best Actress
The committee is made up of twelve people, who are selected from both inside the film industry and education system and outside, giving an eclectic mix of opinions to the curation
of the event.
None of the judges will be committee members, to ensure complete transparency in the Awards process and differentiation between the selections and awards.
