Welcome to the Maryland Filmmakers Fall 2021 Film Festival application page. The Maryland Filmmakers Fall Film Festival celebrates the art of filmmaking, and storytelling. Our organization open to anyone interested in making, producing, directing, acting in, or editing student films at the University of Maryland, College Park. Maryland Filmmakers provides a taste of professional film making to all students by allowing them to work with other students on short films as a group. We bring together students from all across the campus, with all kinds of interests and areas of expertise, and allow them to work in the field of their interest and hone their skills in video production. As a club we teach the basics in video production, provide the equipment, assist during the film making process, and coordinate a venue in which to show their work to the general public.

A panel of judges will select the winner who will receive a trophy and will be featured on our Facebook Page. There are two submission categories, and one award total for all outside submissions. Beyond this, we have several awards for in house productions from our 1000+ members!

All participants must follow the complete list of terms and conditions set forth below by The Maryland Filmmakers.

If selected, filmmakers are to provide a link to download a digital copy of your film for our projection team. Google Drive, WeTransfer, Dropbox, Vimeo or any other reputable download website will help make this process simple. Our programs are approximately 120 minutes in length. Films are screened in a back to back, rapid fire format to hold the interest of the audience. Shorter credits are appreciated.

    Thanks for selecting my film as a finalist at this festival. It seems super fun. But it will be great if you can publish the program and winner list on your website or social media.
