Celebrating Student Film
The Yale Student Film Festival (YSFF) is a student-run short film festival, providing the opportunity for university-level filmmakers, from Yale and from around the world, to exhibit their work.
Founded in 2015, YSFF takes place annually at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. Due to the pandemic, the event will be taking place virtually this year, 2020. The event includes feature film screenings, workshops, and panels led by Yale alumni in the entertainment industry, culminating in a competitive student block and awards ceremony.
The festival began as a collaboration between the Yale Film Alliance, Yale Film Study Center, Yale Film Studies Program, Films at the Whitney, and the Yale College Dean's Office to highlight the growing community of filmmakers on Yale's Campus, who create work outside of a traditional film school environment.
