The Student World Awards has one objective : seek and spot the best student movie talents from everywhere, then screen their films and show how much raw talent today gets to compete with professional industry levels.

Our first edition took place on May 5, in the Echo Park Film Center, right on Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles.

The festival turns trimestrial. Each 3-months edition will end with its finalists and winners, which will be notified by the end of the 3 months, and receive their certificate awards.

Then for the annual screening, all the winners for August, November, and February will go to the annual competition ending with the annual screening event in Los Angeles. No additive fee, you have nothing to do : we keep you posted.

OUR DIFFERENCE
Most of the festivals have a student category to submit, lots of them have student special fees and waivers. But we think this is not enough.

This is why we created a festival dedicated to the student artists. Because it's a special time in your lives that you need to build on.

The film schools, the education the youngsters have, the society of images we live in today pushed a whole new generation to another level of creativity.

Young directors and student crews today are using different technologies than Peter Jackson or Steven Spielberg when they were kids, and maybe they are making different movies. But what students shoot today, most of the time is pretty astonishing. They break the ceiling of what the « student » expectations are.

To get that, you just need to attend some screenings, and to pay attention to certain festivals that screen a selection of student films or films made by students.

But the Student World Awards is 100% dedicated to students. Clear and simple.

Awards & Prizes

We have 4 mainstream categories, so we have 4 awards.
We may have special recognition awards depending on the films we receive.

STUDENT FILM
The film you made by the end of your school curse. It may be the film you have been graduate with, of your final student work even if it was not for official graduation purpose.

FILM MADE AS A STUDENT
You are a student for many years, and sometimes you feel having more freedom with your own film than the one you take part in during film school. Any film you made during your student years is allowed to submit. If you submit here, your film must have been made without the help of your school.

STUDENT DOCUMENTARY
A documentary you made during your student time or for your graduation.

STUDENT X-TRA SHORT
