What's happening?
Uni Shorts International Student Film Festival 2013 is being held at the Unitec Institute of Technology in Auckland, New Zealand, 13-14 April. The two-day festival will see 30 student-made short films from around the world (selected from nearly 200 entries) screen in competition. You can see the list of 30 film finalists below.

There's also engaging panel sessions and Q&A with guest industry speakers on topics relating to the changing filmmaking landscape and the impact of new media platforms and technology on how films are now being exhibited and distributed. These discussions will be of great value to emerging and student film makers, students and media studies/film teachers. "Student filmmakers and those starting out in the industry will find value in attending next month's festival. Our lineup of seminars will address issues important to them as they staircase into an industry that is evolving all the time and they need to adapt to these changes," says festival chairperson, Athina Tsoulis.

We're also excited to welcome the Hollywood producer of 2004 cult hit Napoleon Dynamite, Chris 'Doc' Wyatt to New Zealand as our keynote speaker. "I'm looking forward to coming to New Zealand and sharing my experiences with New Zealand filmmakers, and have them share theirs with me, so that we can grow together as a global indie film community," he says.
