NxtUp Fest

May 5th | 7PM |  491 Post Street

NXTUP FEST is a celebration of excellence in the creation and production of moving images at Academy of Art University.

Students from every School at Academy of Art University are welcome to submit work in any category.

  • Preliminary Judging will be performed by the departments awarding the Certificate of Excellence.
  • Finalists’ projects will be viewable starting April 17th at www.nxtupfest.com
  • Final Judging will be through student online voting, opening April 17th at www.nxtupfest.com

The categories have specific submission & judging criteria. Submissions that do not meet the judging criteria will not be considered. 

Every submission must be accompanied by a submission form. You must submit one form per each Category you submit for—i.e., a film submitted for both the editing and acting categories needs TWO submission forms, one for each category.

Submissions must be housed on a Vimeo or YouTube Channel, by applicant. Links to the submission must be placed on the application.  If the channel is private make sure and put the password on your application/s. No submissions will be accepted without materials attached.

Submission forms are available online at NXTUPFEST.com, or in the MPT office at 466 Townsend Street.
