Festival Overview

Established in 2010, The West Virginia Mountaineer Short Film Festival celebrates exceptional, compelling, original and innovative works in film, video, and animation. We celebrate and invite works that are truly authentic and unique, that try to push beyond standard fare and convention in all genres of the moving image. The primary mission of the festival is to celebrate, recognize and help to cultivate this attitude towards the cinematic arts, and to expose West Virginia University students and the surrounding Morgantown community to the world of independent filmmaking, video and animation.


Competition categories include: Documentary Short, Narrative Short, Animation, Experimental, Student, Young filmmakers (under 18) and works that focus on the theme "Borders" (see website for details)
