Sponsor:Capilano University Film Centre
Cash Award Value: 500 Canadian Dollar


CATEGORY RULES
To be eligible for the BC Student ShortWork Award entries, must be produced by students in post–secondary programs in British Columbia (BC), completed in the 2012/2013 academic year.

If you are a student with a short film you wish to submit, and are from outside of BC please submit to the Canadian or International ShortWork Category. Student films from outside BC submitted to this category will not be screened.

Submissions to this category are submitted electronically. DVDs are no longer being accepted due to WFF's going green initiatives. You are able to submit via Withoutabox online screener or WFF's free secure Submissions File Transfer Protocol (FTP) site. When checking out, please choose "Secure Online Screener" regardless of online screener method chosen. If you do not have a WithoutABox online screener attached to your project, the WithoutABox secure online screener fee of $2.95 will be refunded upon checkout.

To access our secure Submissions FTP, you will require free to download FTP software such as Filezilla or Cyberduck.

Only the uploader and WFF will be able to see the submission on our FTP. Your film will be hidden to other uploaders. This is why the directory looks blank. If you log out and back in, your file will be hidden. FTP submissions must be 250mb or less in file size.
