Student Shorts 2004 submission reminder! 

This was to be forwarded to the New Media Students:

My name is Iain Robinson, co-director of the 4th annual Student Shorts Film Festival. Student Shorts is a national forum exclusively for Canadian part and full time post secondary students to show off their hard work on a big screen, make some industry connections and possibly sell films! The festival offers a friendly and positive environment to young filmmakers from across our nation, a chance to win some incredible industry awards and have their films juried by the people such as Bruce McDonald.

Basic Guidelines:

- To submit your work you must be enrolled full or part time at a Canadian post secondary institution.

- Submitted work must be no longer than 30 mins, and can be shown on miniDV, DVD or 16mm (optical or silent)

- Send your submission form and VHS preview tape by June 1st. For more information and to download a submission form or fill out an electronic one, visit and follow the Student Shorts 2003 link

- There is a $15 registration fee to help cover our costs. This fee must be paid by either money order or certified cheque.

- The festival will take place on September 24 and 25th at Toronto’s prestigious Jackman hall at the Art Gallery of Ontario. (Cinematheque)

- Other events, like last year's successful panel discussions, are currently in the works and should be scheduled at the National Film Board shortly.

- The after party and awards ceremony was an incredible success last year and we have something even bigger lined up this year with more sponsors than ever!

- Keep checking the website for more information – it serves as THE resource for the festival. (

Last year we had over 180 submissions from coast to coast and are hoping to receive even more this year. Student Shorts is now in it's 4th wicked year, I invite you to check out our website for all submission information, as well to get a chance to see what the festival is all about.

Be a part of the fastest growing and coolest film festival in Canada, and help show the world the power of student film!
