Attention all Ontario post-secondary student filmmakers! The Student Film Festival (stuFF) wants your shorts, and they’ll take them for free. In its first ever season, this online film festival is looking to find the next rising star in filmmaking. Is it you?

Brought to you by, stuFF opens its online doors for submission applications Monday, February 6. Shorts must be under 15 minutes in length and fit into the drama, comedy, documentary, animated, musical, or experimental genres. Only one winner will be chosen.

That lucky filmmaker not only will be the first ever stuFF winner, but will receive a cash award of $1000 and a mentoring session with Brothers on Fire Productions as well. The application process is open until March 20, but don’t delay. If you’re a post-secondary student in Ontario between 18-35 years of age with filmmaking aspirations and a solid short film, bring it to the table. The online table.
