Requirements & Guidelines

To have your film considered for the 2022 PUSD Digital Film Festival, you MUST follow the requirements below.


1. Please review all the requirements carefully.

2. Your film must be uploaded and submitted before April 19th, 2022 by 11:59 pm.

3. We are looking for films of substantial content ranging from from 30 seconds to 3 minutes. However, you are allowed up to 5 minutes with 30 seconds of solely credits (max video may be 5:30). We are trying to give as many students a chance to share their voice.

4. Your film must have been made after August 2021 (during this school year).

5. Submissions should be school appropriate. We will recognize films with mature content, but there is a difference between 'made for older audiences' and 'inappropriate'.

6. You may only submit one film unless specifically told otherwise by the Film Festival Committee.

7. Your film must be uploaded to our Submission Form.

8. All music must be original, free licensed or significantly modified from its original source (re-writing lyrics to a song).

Once you have fulfilled all 8 requirements, go and submit your film!

The Film Festival Committee will evaluate and select films to be displayed based on a 9 point scale following the criteria below.
