Filmshift seeks out Student films and screenplays to showcase within the general festival. Films entered into competition at the Filmshift Festival compete with the “professional” films and screenplays and are eligible to win prizes along with our Shifty Awards.
This competition is for young filmmakers who are serious about the craft and want to grow as filmmakers. It’s a fun and exciting ways for students to get a jumpstart on their filmmaking careers.
Getting your work accepted into or given an award at a festival can also be a valuable accomplishment to add to a resume or college application.
Student Films Showcase
The Filmshift Festival gives students the chance to present their work to a mass audience, and in turn, it gives the audience the opportunity to see rookie filmmakers on the rise.
Some genres of films that we’re seeking include, but are not limited to: Drama, Comedy, Thriller, Horror, Documentary, Music Video, and Animated films.
Ten percent of the festival’s gross ticket sales will be donated our charity, Christopher’s Haven.
