Student Film Festival
The Princeton Student Film & Video Festival is sponsored by the Princeton Public Library. The mission of the festival is to encourage and support the work of youth filmmakers in a range of genres and styles, with the opportunity and a venue for the filmmakers to show their work to a broad audience. The festival is open to local, national and international high school and college students (and home-schooled, unschooled or not in school youth) ages 14-25.
The festival is in its 13th year and will be held on July 20 & 21, 2016 at the Princeton Public Library, Princeton, NJ. Please go to the entry form and guidelines to submit a film for consideration. There is no fee to enter.
For more information about the festival please contact: Susan Conlon, 609.924.9529 ext. 1247.
Congratulations to the 2015 PSF&VF filmmakers! Our festival continues to grow, and we received nearly 200 original films from high school and college-aged students from around the world. We thank all of the filmmakers who submitted their work for consideration. There were so many outstanding films, and while we could not include them all, we are very grateful for the time spent in the creative process of making the films and the additional effort in submitting them to us for consideration.
For a detailed look at the films, check out the 2015 program guide.
