Redstone Alumni Short Film Competition 2014

We are excited to announce the call for submissions for Best Alumni Short to the 2014 Redstone Film Festival in Los Angeles on April 10, 2014. For more than 20 years Sumner Redstone has funded our student film festival, which was originally only in Boston and has expanded to Los Angeles and, more recently, to New York City. In 2011, we introduced a competition for our Film &TV Alumni. The winning film will be shown as part of the Redstone Festival Los Angeles screening, along with the current student finalists chosen by the Redstone judges. The winner will be awarded a Canon DSLR camera & accessories sponsored by Canon.

The Film and Television Department at COM is accepting shorts produced or directed by BU alumni according to the following criteria:

  • Short must have been produced and/or directed by a BU alumna/us post-graduation
  • Length: 30 minutes or fewer
  • Submission format: DVD (Blu-Ray preferred) **If your submission is chosen, Blu-Ray will be required for the screening.

The winning film will be chosen by a panel of COM Film & Television faculty and screened at the Redstone Film Festival in Los Angeles on April 10, 2014. The filmmaker will be invited to join the panel of student filmmakers for a post-screening Q&A, followed by an alumni and industry reception.

All submissions must be postmarked by Friday, March 7, 2014. Click here for information about the festival and for complete instructions on how to submit.
