SUBMISSIONS REOPEN JANUARY 17TH- JANUARY 31st FOR OUR NEW YEARS DEADLINE!

--
Founded by James Warrack in 1999 as a final showcase for thesis students, the aim of the Image Arts Film Festival (formerly known as RUFF), is to give students a large-scale festival experience and a launching pad into future work in the industry. Taking place in early May, the Image Arts Film Festival takes place over the course of two days. Festivities include a red carpet, a gala, an awards ceremony, daytime panels, daytime, and nighttime screenings, and an after-party.

The Image Arts Film Festival is excited to announce our inaugural Daytime Events. This year, for the very first time, the Image Arts Film Festival will be accepting film submissions from students across ALL YEARS.

Submissions are now open to students currently enrolled in Film Studies, Photography & Integrated Digital at the School of Image Arts. Filmmakers may submit any work (not limited to films made for academic credit) completed from the time they began their studies until the final submission deadline.

We are so excited to see and share your films, and we hope to see you at the Image Arts Film Festival in the spring of 2022!
