2023 Holle Award for Excellence in Filmmaking

The 2023 Holle Award for Excellence in Filmmaking honors the director of the best narrative or documentary short film made by an undergraduate student.

We are seeking films that demonstrate artistic excellence through creative storytelling, emotional resonance, ambition, and an engagement with larger themes. Ideally, projects will be tightly connected to the distinct lived experiences of the director. The director of the film must either be currently enrolled as an undergraduate student or a graduate in the calendar year of 2022.

The top five films selected by the Holle Award judges will automatically be programmed in the 2023 Black Warrior Film Festival at The University of Alabama.

The deadline to submit is January 27, 2023 at 11:59 pm CST.
