MISSION & OBJECTIVE
It is the stated purpose of the Ivy Film Festival by its founders to first and foremost provide a venue for the creative efforts of student filmmakers enrolled at universities worldwide, and in particular those students with significantly diminished access to filmmaking resources. The Ivy Film Festival also seeks to provide aspiring filmmakers with the opportunity to interact closely with a variety of industry professionals during the course of the festival weekend, thus promoting an educational sense of community for all involved. Finally, it is a goal of the festival to promote and support interest in film and the filmmaking industry for all those involved in the festival.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The Ivy Film Festival is among the largest student-run film festivals in the world and offers students from domestic and foreign universities a place to exhibit their work.The festival occurs annually in the spring, spans a full week, and is held on Brown University's campus. Each year, thousands of filmmakers and enthusiasts flock to Brown to attend filmmaker screenings, keynote speeches by entertainment industry executives and celebrities, panels and workshops by industry professionals, cocktail receptions, and parties. Past industry guests have included Jack Nicholson, Martin Scorsese, Oliver Stone, Adrien Brody, Laura Linney, Wes Craven, Park Chan-wook, Aaron Sorkin, James Franco, and Lena Dunham, among many others.

The festival features four separate competitions, each with its own individual awards: the domestic undergraduate film competition; the graduate school film competition; the international film competition; and the screenplay competition.

The Ivy Film Festival selects and showcases approximately thirty submissions per year, and accepts films/screenplays of all types and genres, including, but not limited to: drama, comedy, animation, experimental, documentary, web series, TV pilots/episodes, and music videos. Generally, the films selected are shorts, but feature-length films may be submitted as well. Screenplays may be any length.

Additionally, in an effort to increase awareness of pertinent social issues, the festival has adopted a "Stories for Change" award for which all film submissions are eligible. These films may be fiction or nonfiction, narrative or documentary, and must astutely and insightfully address and/or portray important social issues.
