Students of the World (SOW) UT is hosting our second annual documentary film festival on May 4th at Spiderhouse Ballroom. Doors open at 6pm. Screenings begin at 7pm.

We are accepting all types of short documentaries.

This semester SOW members focused on making documentaries on the experience of racism, gun control, alternative education and a podcast on the Ugandan genocide. They will be included in the festival, but we are accepting all types of short documentaries.

Prizes will be awarded to the first, second and third place winners determined by guest judges (TBA soon).

The Students of the World Documentary Film Festival is intended for filmmakers in Austin, TX or surrounding areas. Film runtime cannot be longer than 10 minutes.
