ACMʼs 13th Annual SMART Exchange in Shanghai

Entry Deadline: Thursday, April 19, 2018 at 5pm


Your film could be among the finalists ACM will submit for consideration for screening in Shanghai as part of the student shorts program co-sponsored by Shanghai University (“SHU”) and attend the Shanghai International Film Festival (“SIFF”), June 16-25, 2018. Up to 6 ACM student films may be selected.

Winning student filmmakers of the selected films will be invited to attend SIFF. This year, the length of the program is focused around the Shanghai Int. Film Festival, and may not yield co-productions (TBD). Ideal participants are ACM majors; live- action and animated films welcomed by the festivals.

Invited students should plan for an out of pocket expense of approx. $3500 to cover individual portion of the travel, lodging, food, and miscellaneous expenses. (The Hawaii Int. Film Festival is a generous sponsor of SMART with the reciprocal exchange program occurring in November in Hawaii.) Selected films will need to be subtitled in English on a MOV file for the screening.

This year, we also have a SMART: Xining option via the LOOKING CHINA program, June 27-July 13, 2017, which currently has greater travel support. You may enter in both.
