Since 2011, I’ve taught an undergraduate course at Pratt Institute on film festivals. Each year, my interdisciplinary class is responsible for organizing the Wallabout Film Festival, a student-run event that showcases student film from around the world. This year’s Wallabout, the 5th anniversary, will take place on Thursday, April 18 at indieScreen in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Wallabout is currently seeking submissions of shorts of any genre, preferably 15 minutes or under, provided they are made by students – current or within one year of graduation, any level, from junior high to graduate school. The deadline is March 18, and, recognizing students’ limited budgets, there is no submission fee!

Please spread the word to students and educators – I’d love for my students to have a wide range of projects to consider, both American and international.
