It’s that time of year again. Our annual call for entries for Cartoon Brew’s 4th Student Film Festival, a yearly showcase of outstanding student films from around the globe. We received over 200 submissions for last year’s festival, and aim to top that number this year.
Our mission for the festival is simple: to draw attention to student-produced animated shorts and share them with the widest possible community of industry artists, fellow students and animation fans. And not just any student films, but films of the highest caliber…the most original, the most thought-provoking, the ones that make us laugh hardest and engage us emotionally. Of course, we present student films throughout the year on Cartoon Brew, but we want the festival to draw even more attention to the exciting work being produced by the art form’s emerging talents.
Every filmmaker whose work is selected to screen in Cartoon Brew’s Student Animation Festival will receive $500 US. This year, special guest judge Evan Spiridellis, the co-founder of JibJab, will select one additional film to receive the Grand Prize and a $1,000 cash prize.
