2017 Call for Submissions


Whether you have been busy producing films as class assignments, or you make films for sheer love of the art, this is your opportunity to inspire peers, teachers and the public at large with your work! The only condition is that your film should be 15 minutes maximum in length.

Current regional high school and college students (undergraduate and graduate) within a 50-mile radius of The College of Saint Rose are encouraged to submit films in the following categories:

a) Fiction (drama, comedy, mystery, action, science fiction, etc.)
b) Nonfiction (documentary, video essay, experimental video, etc.)
c) Music video
d) Animation

Only one submission per person, please. Submissions in a language other than English are welcome, as long as they include English subtitles. In order to avoid copyright infringements, the submitted films must not include any material under copyright (logos, etc.), must use music that is royalty free, in the public domain, or available under Creative Commons license. All films must abide by the Center of Social Media’s Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Online Video and must adhere to a PG-13 rating.

Please upload your film to YouTube and save it as public or unlisted. Then send an email to 15minutesmax@strose.edu including the following information:

– Link to your film in YouTube
– Title, length, and category
– Date of completion
– Your name, school where you are enrolled, and major (if applicable)

The deadline for submissions is Friday, May 19th, 2017, by 11:59pm. A selection of the best films will be screened during the sixth annual 15 Minutes Max on September 23, 2017 at the Madison Theatre in Albany, NY (time to be determined). The festival will include an award ceremony, as well as an Audience Choice Award.

For questions, please email Liz Richards.
