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 2014/2015 academic years.

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 VIMEO link.

If you are submitting via VIMEO link, please select OTHER FILE as your screener type and send with title, tracking # and link with password to program@whistlerfilmfestival.com

We HIGHLY recommend sending us a VIMEO screener due to the SD nature of Withoutabox screeners.
