Rules, terms, and other information
Current students, staff, and faculty of Roane State Community College are invited to submit original short films (1-8 minutes). The film festival is open to all students – full-time, part-time, Middle College, dual enrollment, traditional, non-traditional, online, and so on – of any major.
The format is up to you. Consider narratives, comedies, dramas, documentaries, parodies, music videos, stop motion, and other formats. Be creative, and show off your skills!
The theme for the film festival this year is "fear." Entrants are encouraged to keep the content of their films representative of Roane State. Committee members will screen entries in advance and reserve the right to reject entries that include explicit content.
All films submitted must have been produced in 2019 or 2020.
Submissions can come from individuals or groups. Submissions may also be entered in other events such as Roane State’s honors forum.
Each filmmaker may submit up to two films in total. Video content must be original. Entrants must secure permission to use any non-original audio content. More information on fair use.
Video quality should be in high definition for theatre screening purposes. Entrants might consider using video cameras on their own smart devices or professional equipment as well as editing software such as iMovie or Quik. Submissions in a language other than English must be fully subtitled in English.
Submissions may be used to help promote future film festivals at Roane State. Entrants retain ownership and copyright of their films.
