Founded in 2001, the Delta Moon Student Film Festival is exclusively dedicated to showcasing the top works of high school students from across the globe.
Entries are judged by a panel of industry professionals. The top-rated entries are designated as "Official Jury Selection" and will be featured at the main screening event at the Lesher Center for the Arts in Walnut Creek, California. Immediately following the screening, winners of each category will be announced.

In past years cash prizes, original custom-designed trophies and certificates have been awarded. Unfortunately, current, California Ed Code forbids us from awarding cash prizes. :-(
Certificates and digital winner's laurels will be issued.

ONLY students ages 19 and under are eligible.

Entries may be submitted via FilmFreeway, youtube or vimeo links. Filmmakers may submit multiple entries. Various large file sharing services may also be an option.
