ABOUT

The Living Skies Student Film Festival is an international short film festival based in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada that showcases student work from all over the world. Now in its 31st year, the festival celebrates outstanding student filmmaking through programmed screenings, receptions and an awards gala. It also serves to incubate creativity in aspiring filmmakers and community members alike through lectures, presentations and workshops from acclaimed independent filmmakers and industry professionals.

BRIEF HISTORY

Situated in a vibrant artistic community in the heart of the prairies, the Department of Film at the University of Regina offers the only BFA Film Production program in Canada between the Great Lakes and the Pacific Ocean. Film students at the University of Regina have been organizing a film festival since 1988 and in 2012 the festival was re-branded as the Living Skies Student Film Festival. 2018 saw the festival celebrate 30 years, and receive more than 1700 submissions from over 90 countries, including an impressive array of Canadian and Saskatchewan short films. The festival has been built by hundreds of Saskatchewan film students and supporting organizations since its inception, and we’re excited about what the next 30 years will bring.
