Wimbledon International Short Film Festival
All films must be less than 15 minutes duration including title sequences and credits. So make it short. You can have real impact in a few minutes or even seconds. Shorter films have an equal chance of an award as longer ones.

- Best Animated Film
- Best Student Film (filmmakers under 25 in schools, colleges and universities)
