Welcome to the 2019 OTBS Student Film Festival website! This film festival was founded by Sven Shoultz, a worker at On The Bluff Studios. He felt that students on campus did not have the opportunity to show off their creativity and abilities when it came to film. To make sure students had an opportunity to show off their great films, Sven created the Student Film Festival in 2018. This next year will be the second Student Film Festival. The festival will be held on February 28th, 2019 in Franz 120 and the films must be submitted by February 24th, 2019 by 11:59 p.m. Shown below are the different categories of videos as well as general guidelines for the films. If you have anymore questions please email us at email@example.com
