About the Yale Student Film Festival: 

The Yale Student Film Festival (YSFF) is a student-run short film festival that provides the opportunity for university-level filmmakers across the globe to exhibit their work. Founded in 2015, the festival, through its free submission platform, celebrates emerging student work from those taking the first steps towards a professional career, and aims to provide a platform to encourage conversation and camaraderie across schools and experiences.


This year’s theme is Local Voices. We are committed to highlighting narratives and filmmakers from the New Haven area, as well as engaging with the community at large.
