UW Student Film Contest

2nd Student Film Contest 2019

For STEM Majors to blow off STEAM 

The 2nd (2019) UW Student Film Contest is now closed. It was opened to all STEM majors across the world with deep collaboration desired from arts/humanities majors.  In the foreign submissions category 169 submissions were received, out of which 15 were shortlisted for relevance to STEAM and judged by a jury of 5 film critics.  In the domestic submissions category, four US University teams worked diligently over many months under close mentorship to produce outstanding films on STEM. Two of these were by UW teams and one by University of Rhode Island. Another team from Indian Institute of Technology-Kanpur partnered with a UW team for film. Due to the COVID19 situation that emerged during late winter of 2019, the planned screening of the selected or award winning films on campus had to be cancelled. Award winning student film makers were notified of their awards with the prize mailed. More details about the successful 2nd UW Film Contest can be found here.

Just like the first one in 2017, the 2nd (2019) UW Student Film Contest has been the perfect contest to take part in for STEM majors  who want to blow off STEAM through film making.  For future participation (3rd one planned for in 2021), interested parties should follow the steps on the right side of the page to get their teams registered and approved of their film plan. Film-making support (software, hardware, video editing) and instruction are available for UW majors. Check the link ‘What is STEAM‘ and the films made by student teams in past contests.  Once teams are formed, the fun will begin on campus, just like the past contests of 2017 and 2019.
