The BAFTA Los Angeles Student Film Awards are an annual event celebrating the works of the next generation of innovative filmmakers.
Featuring an evening of student films selected by a jury of industry professionals, BAFTA Los Angeles members are invited to select the best film on the night, which receives the BAFTA Los Angeles Student Film Award. Recognition is also given to the runners up.
Our Jury consists of BAFTA Members from a cross-section of disciplines. If you are interested in serving on our selection jury we invite you to CONTACT US . We invite you to help BAFTA identify and support the emerging international talents who have come to California to hone their filmmaking techniques.
Submissions to the BAFTA Los Angeles Student Film Awards are accepted from not only the nation’s top film schools, but also many smaller community collages that operate film education programs. Recent participating schools include American Film Institute, California Institute of the Arts, University of Southern California, University of California Los Angeles, Chapman University, Los Angeles Film School, Santa Monica Colleage and Loyola Marymount University.
In addition to the Award, the winning filmmaker is also given a year’s opportunity to attend BAFTA Los Angeles events, seminars and screenings for a year to support their pursuits during this important early stage of their filmmaking career.
