Amandus STUDENT is the biggest student film competition in Norway and one of the biggest in the Nordic countries. The competition is Amanda qualifying. The competition is open for anyone who make films at an educational institution in the Nordics and where the filmmakers mainly are over the age of 20. Film submissions are not restricted to graduation films, but has to be made during and in relation to the school
The goal of the competition is to show the wide specter of film education the Nordic countries has to offer. We hope that having an inclusive student film competition will help strengthening film education through the countries.
All submitted films will be reviewed by a preselection committee, which will pick out the final contributions that are invited to the festival. Filmmakers with a nominated film will be invited to Lillehammer in April, and will get the full VIP treatment. A prestigious jury will select the winners for the Amandus prizes that will be announced at the Awards Ceremony Friday April 3rd 2020.
If you represent an educational institution, and you have students that make film, we hope you will help us having the films submitted to the Amandus festival.
Many students submit their films by themselves, but every year we also miss some great films that are never submitted. We hope to see your school represented in this category, and therefore need your help to get all the great films submitted.
The submission form is primarily made for the filmmakers to submit their own films, but if you as a representative want to submit a larger amount of films, you can contact us to get an easier way of submitting the films.
