SMPTE HPA Student Film Festival announces winners
On the evening of Wednesday, 26 October, at the historic Egyptian Theater, the SMPTE-HPA Student Film Festival unspooled an impressive array of student made shorts that included animation, virtual reality, and live action entries. Jurors curated the selected shorts from a record number of more than 250 submissions from more than 46 countries.
Seth Hallen, HPA President noted, “The wealth of entries for this year’s festival was inspiring. The work was outstanding and imaginative, and it is wonderful to see entries from students from a wide array of global educational institutions. Our jurors faced quite a difficult challenge choosing winners from the high caliber of submissions we received. As the festival screenings demonstrated, it was an excellent and competitive field, and one that included the first high school student to win a category! Looking at these entries, winners, and nominees, I am eager to continue enjoying the great works these budding young artists have in store for us as their careers unfold.”
