By Carina Tamer


To see the winners, check out our playlist: Student Film Fest Jury Awards 2021 

  ARGO stands by all filmmakers – the seasoned experts and the very-beginners. Thousands of student filmmakers create fresh, inspired work each year. We strive to beat the drum for these new undiscovered visionaries.  So, we created the Student Short Competition (Argo’s SHORTS Film Fest) to celebrate the work of young filmmakers across the globe. We received over 400 submissions from over 50 countries, collecting a mosaic of work from Mali to Albania,  Madrid, Mumbai, and more.  After reviewing this eclectic collection of work, our panel of judges shortlisted 28 finalists.  Now it’s your turn to choose your top favorites within each category.  Voting is open to the public until MARCH 31st. Winners will be announced online early APRIL.  HOW TO VOTE:
