USC Film Festival

29 March 2018

Submissions are now open until 4pm Friday, 20 April, so there's plenty of time to get the camera rolling. Need inspo? Check out this reel of awesome short films in the meantime...

Want to know the five elements that make a winning short film?

Catch up on all the goss from the Q&A session on the USC Film Festival site on Blackboard (just log in and enrol for access).

Not sure where to begin?

If the $500 first prize isn't incentive enough, here's some short film examples to get you in the AI frame of mind...

Made by students, for students: short film examples

AI in Canada: The following films by the University of Alberta illustrate information about AI.

Student examples: These films are longer than the USC film Festival criteria – but they are creative examples of AI situations.

These films were produced by students for the APFEI Student video competition - Asia Pacific forum on Educational Integrity (APEI) 

 “APEI is a multi-institutional, cross-disciplinary and non-profit organisation that fosters research and collaboration on issues relating to educational and academic integrity”.

FAQs - and the list will grow

Can anyone enter?

Only students at USC can enter the contest.

How long is the video?

Videos must be between 1-2 minutes. This is longer than a commercial and enough time to get your point across.

Do I have to use specialised equipment?

No - your phone and basic film editing software should do the trick.

How many people can be in a team?

As many or as few as you can handle. The prize money is awarded to the selected film regardless of the number of students on a team.

What is academic integrity?

A great question! There is a lot of information and resources available on Blackboard and the USC website (see links below).

Note: We will be adding resources and links to this page to inspire you, so check in again!
