About FilmFest

Abilene Christian University’s FilmFest is a student short film festival designed to give those interested in film production and the motion picture and entertainment industries a creative outlet at ACU and allow inroads into the industry through alumni and professionals that serve as judges for the event.

Students follow a specific calendar and rules tailored each year to create a short film. Judges across the United States evaluate those films; then awards are presented at a gala red-carpet event at Abilene’s historic Paramount Theatre in downtown Abilene. ACU FilmFest began in 2005. The top films in contention for best picture will be shown during live event.

The awards event is open to the public. Admission is free.
