2018 ACM Showcase & Awards

The deadline for submissions is Friday, April 20 at 5pm!

All currently enrolled UHM students who have created work in ACM classes are eligible and encouraged to enter their films in the 2018 ACM Awards. All accepted films will be screened at the ACM Screening Showcase at 6pm on both Thursday, April 26th, and Friday, April 27th. 
The ACM Awards Ceremony will be held on Friday, May 4th at 6pm. Both the Screening Showcase and the Awards Ceremony are open to all UHM students, faculty, staff, cast, crew and family members.

Students may submit only one film each with this exception: if you are a Senior who is graduating in 2018 (May, Summer, or Fall), you may submit up to two films that you have made over your career in the ACM. For such graduating seniors, a separate application package is necessary for each film submission.

Awards will be given out in categories including Best Narrative, Best Experimental, Best Documentary, Best Directing, Best Cinematography, Best Editing, Best Collaborator and Best Animation, among others. Awards will be decided by a panel of ACM faculty judges. 

An audience award will be presented based on peer responses collected at the ACM Screening Showcase. So bring your cast, crews, friends and family members to the screenings!
