Accepting Entries for the 2017 Season
The culminating screening event is scheduled for Friday, 19 May at the Lesher Center for the Arts in downtown Walnut Creek, California.
Since 2001, the Delta Moon Student Film Festival has been committed to promoting and celebrating student filmmakers from throughout North America.
In 2014, we expanded by creating a category for international films. The response was nothing less than phenomenal. In 2015 we experienced continued expansion to the count of over 500 entries from 55 countries on 6 continents. The sheer quantity however, was matched by the exceptional quality and thoughtfulness of these young filmmakers. This tradition continues today.
We accept films up to 10 minutes in duration, produced by filmmakers ages 19 and under.
We prefer films be entered via Film Freeway, which is also where you will find our complete rules and categories
Thank you for visiting us.
