MISSION & OBJECTIVE

It is the stated purpose of Ivy Film Festival to, first and foremost, provide a venue for the creative efforts of student filmmakers enrolled at universities worldwide-- in particular, those students with significantly diminished access to filmmaking resources. 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

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, Wes Anderson, 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, and documentary. The films selected are shorts (generally under 30 minutes). Screenplay categories include shorts, features, and TV pilots.

All finalists featured in IFF's Official Selection are invited to attend the festival week in April on Brown University's campus. Finalists are provided lodging and access to all festival events.

Films and screenplays should either be submitted via Withoutabox or by mail to:
