The Reel Stars Student Film Festival was developed by a consortium of Media Arts teachers in Coquitlam, who felt there was a need for a “localized” event, whereby more student films could be recognized. The Reel Stars Film Festival represents an opportunity for a larger number of students to have their films viewed in a public forum, regardless of whether or not they have won an award.

Reel Stars honours student achievement in the following film categories: Public Service Announcement, Music Video, Documentary, Experimental, Animation, Narrative Drama, Narrative Comedy, Narrative Thriller/Horror, and Sports Video. See Rules and Regulations for more information. Winners will receive the coveted Reel Stars Slate Board Plaque.

Movie submission cost: FREE :) criteria/production details: All films need to be created wholly by students...this includes production, direction and all technical aspects.
