We are now accepting film submissions for Wallabout 2016!



Filmmaker must be a student. As a student organization, Wallabout’s goal is to promote student films.Work from high school, undergraduate and graduate students are all eligible for consideration. Recent graduates (within one year) are encouraged to submit as well.

Submissions made electronically must be .mov files or links to .mov files. Note: If your film is selected to screen, Wallabout must have access to a .mov file of your film in order to project it properly.
