We wish to thank all the students who submitted their work for consideration.
With over 600 submissions, our panel of industry experts will begin viewing and
scoring the entries. Good luck and plan to join us at Lynn University's Wold Theater
on April 6th at 9:30 am for The 23rd Annual Student Showcase of Films.
The Palm Beach International Film Festival's Student Showcase of Films is the largest statewide

Honoring the legacy of Burt Reynolds, the festival also awards an annual scholarship bearing his name, an Audience Award and a Sara Fuller Scholarship through Film Florida.
