Submissions for Watersprite 2014: The Cambridge International Student Film Festival

The Cambridge International Student Film Festival


Submissions for Watersprite 2014 are opening on




Watersprite, the Cambridge International Student Film Festival, now in its fourth year, has already established itself as the world’s leading international student film festival.


This is an excellent occasion for you to support your filmmakers by encouraging them to submit their films. Please make sure your students do not miss this opportunity.


Watersprite prides itself on;

Creating tangible opportunities for new filmmakers

Acting as a platform to bridge the gap between students and professionals

Providing student filmmakers with a network, in-kind prizes and industry recognition


In the past, our nominees have received travel bursaries to attend the festival and past prizes have included, for example, a week’s shooting with ARRI’s Alexa camera, production mentorships, lighting academy workshops with ARRI, or a week’s work experience with Aardman Animations.


Watersprite is organised by students, for students. It is free to submit and free to attend. We welcome animation, documentary and fiction films, made by students, and up to 20 minutes long. Submissions will remain open for 4 weeks and close on Monday 25th November.


We would really appreciate it if you could circulate this information amongst your students or forward it to other relevant parties.

If you, or any of your students, have any further questions about the festival, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
