Empowering Creativity, Celebrating Talent

Welcome to the Summer Shorts Contest, a vibrant and contemporary platform designed to nurture the creative spirit and applaud the talents of filmmakers across the globe. This initiative is brought to you by Student Filmmakers Magazine, the leading, dedicated resource for film and video production that's well-loved by industry professionals and educators.

The Journey of Excellence

Our journey began in 2004 when Student Filmmakers took shape as an online portal. By 2006, we were publishing a popular print edition and had already become a trusted ally for educators and industry professionals. Today, we're proud to have over 90,000 subscribers and a strong, thriving community.

We have expanded our reach through a collection of engaging online platforms such as StudentFilmmakers.com, StudentFilmmakersForums.com, StudentFilmmakersStore.com, StudentFilmmakers.Network, HDProGuide.com, and SportsVideoTech.com.

Our parent company, Space Race Publishing, manages these online portals that empower creative professionals within the entertainment industry. We cover all five stages of filmmaking and content development, from development to distribution, making us a comprehensive resource for our community.
