For the fifth year in a row, we are pleased to announce our annual Cartoon Brew Student Film Festival. The mission for the festival is simple: to honor student-produced animated shorts and share them with the widest possible community of industry decision-makers, fellow students, and animation enthusiasts from around the world.
As the animation industry expands and evolves at an unprecedented pace, we are on a quest to identify and honor the next generation of boundary-breaking filmmakers. We’re not looking for just any student film, but films of the highest caliber…the most original, the most thought-provoking, the ones that make us laugh hardest and engage us emotionally. In other words, the student films that show a willingness to explore new directions and strive to elevate the standards of student filmmaking—and to do so with personal flair. You can see the past showcased films here.
