Identity Film Festival

Western Academy of Beijing's annual Identity Film Festival is back, and this time we're accepting submissions from students of all ages and all Beijing schools!

The Identity Film Festival celebrates the ingenuity and creativity of student and alumni filmmakers from around the world. The annual event at WAB not only serves as a showcase of excellent student films, but also as an intimate experience for the student filmmakers to share their experiences.

Submissions welcome from students of all ages and all Beijing schools

Submissions accepted until May 6



This year's festival will take place May 19, alongside WAB's famous Rock in the Park music festival. It is open to the public, and free to enter.

As the name of the festival suggests, participating students are encouraged to challenge, celebrate and explore the concept of "identity." It will be up to each and every participant to decide what "identity" means to them and to showcase their understanding through the exciting medium of film.

Please turn on your VPN and visit http://goo.gl/htFmui to download a submission form for your film. Submissions are being accepted now until May 6.

Please submit the form to identityfilmfestival@gmail.com, after which an invite-only link will be sent for film submissions to be uploaded.

We look forward to seeing your films!
