Thunderbird Film Festival is now accepting submissions

8 Mar

The Thunderbird Film Festival is now accepting submissions for our tenth annual event, taking place April 8, 2011. Held on the Southern Utah University campus in beautiful Cedar City, Utah, the Festival will continue its tradition of connecting student filmmakers and their work to new audiences, as well as providing unique opportunities to learn from professionals in the business.

The Festival offers two separate categories for entry: The Thunderbird Competition (college, independent films), and the High School Competition.  All entries will be critiqued on both technical and artistic skill.  Winning entries will be screened during the the event, and the filmmakers will receive VIP invitations to attend.

All entries must be received by 5:00pm on March 25, 2011.  For a list of specific guidelines, deadlines, and contact information, please visit our website at

The 2011 Thunderbird Film Festival promises to be an exciting and educational event.  Although there is a competitive aspect to the films selected for screening, the Festival regards itself as a celebration of independent filmmakers. We build a collective of creative artists, providing opportunities for everyone to interact, build, and dream together.  We invite you and your students to join us in April for this incredible event.

If you have any questions, please contact Battista Locatelli at
