Entering the Next Chapter

Congratulations to the cast and crew of our top place finishers: HER, Church and The House.

We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to all the students who participated in the inaugural Autumn Sun Short Film Invitational. And for those who haven't yet, watch the 2022 Award Presentation to enjoy the fantastic works of our top ten films from this past season.

Exciting changes are coming to the Autumn Sun Short Film Invitational.

2022-2023 Season:

This season will introduce an expanded format for the HBCU Invitational that will allow for the showcasing of up to 100 student films next spring, with over ten awards categories. Top entries will travel to Detroit next June for a chance to take home the top prize at the Invitational Awards Gala during the 2023 Autumn Sun Arts Festival. All events will be broadcast live with our partners HBCU Go of the Allen Media Group and the Garden Theater.  Visit our FilmFreeway for the complete guidelines to the 2023 submission process.

2023-2024 Season:

We are thrilled to announce that we will launch an open field series where high school and young adult(30 and under) filmmakers will compete against peers from across the country. The top ten from each group will join us for the 2024 Autumn Sun Arts Festival.

Be sure to check back for updates.

Happy Filming!
