We are now accepting submissions for the 2020 Illini Film Fest! Comedy and drama, music and dance, video essays and documentaries, experimental films and animation: Short films of any form, genre, or style are welcome!
We are also looking for your home movies! Do you have a message to send to your classmates and friends? Do you want to offer your fellow students a note of hope and positivity? Can you construct a fun, creative, 2 - 5 minute clip with just your smartphone or webcam? We’d love to help you share these sentiments with the rest of the UIUC student body and Champaign-Urbana community.
We even want your TikTok videos! Show us your Jack Black-inspired quarantine dance! Or your Tiger King dance! In fact, you don’t have to dance at all. Just show us a burst of creative energy in a memorable, entertaining TikTok video.
If you're still looking for more motivation, each program will have an audience award: $100 for the favorite short film, $75 for the most creative home movie, and $50 for the favorite TikTok video.
Fill out the form on our Submission page to send us your video, and we’ll see you (or at least you’ll see us) on May 2nd for the Illini Film Fest Livestream Event.
