In service of our student outreach for the Lighthouse International Film Festival, taking place on Long Beach Island, NJ, from June 5-9, 2024, we are actively gathering student (K- 12) submissions for exhibition.

We are interested in any projects your students might have created in the last school year and present school year. This is our 15th annual festival and we are hoping to make it a destination event for high school filmmakers to mingle with professional talent throughout the festival. We would love to showcase your students and their work!

Deadline to submit is MAY 1st. NO EXCEPTIONS!

Please email submissions to
SUBJECT LINE: LIFF Student Film Submission

Please submit links for all film submissions and include a short description of the film (2-3 sentences). Be sure to include your contact information. We will let you know that we've received it and will contact you once your film has been reviewed.

Student filmmakers whose films are accepted will receive 1 VIP ALL ACCESS PASS for themselves and 1 VIP ALL ACCESS PASS for a Parent / Guardian / Family Member.


VIP All Access Pass holders are the first to be granted access to theaters for the best seats in the house; this pass will permit you admission to all public film screenings and festival events, including the Breakfast with Filmmakers on Friday and Saturday mornings.


In addition, one of our professional, award-winning team members will attend the Student Film Program screenings, view the students' films, and participate in the Q&A afterward.

For more information about the festival, please explore our website and follow the Lighthouse International Film Festival on Facebook!
