ExFest 2024 – Call for Submissions

The submission poster for ExFest 2024, describing the deadline and desired content.

Another year, another ExFest! As the Spring semester comes to a close, it is once again time for us to open the submissions for ExFest 2024. We are accepting time-based works from current students, whether that be narrative film, animation, performance for video, or even experimental video!

Submissions for ExFest 2024 are now open!

ExFEST is ExTV’s annual film festival made by students for students. Open to all forms of video art, our film festival allows students to compete for a chance to showcase their best work in front of an ExTV-selected jury, win festival awards, and have fun! This will be our 18th year running, and we’re excited to see what’s in store. Each year, ExFEST occurs sometime around the October following summer applications. Our festival is open to all currently enrolled students of SAIC. 

We want to encourage a diverse community of video art at SAIC – so don’t be afraid to submit your work! We appreciate any and all submissions, but keep in mind that this is a screening event – works should aim to be longer than 2 minutes, yet shorter than 25. (Sound is always appreciated, but don’t feel pressured to add it.) You are also able to submit MORE THAN ONE WORK, which can increase your chances of getting in!

Submissions are due by July 1st, and a screening will follow in the Fall

You can apply using the google form in the button below! Submitting is not limited per person, and is open to all current undergrad and grad students.
