Red Brick Film Festival

Eligibility, Deadline & Rules


All currently enrolled Hendrix students are eligible to submit films.


The deadline for submission is Wednesday, April 12 2017 by 5 p.m. For more information, contact Travis Peeples, multimedia technical director in the Oathout Technology Center/SLTC, at or (501) 450-1346.


  • Films should be a maximum of 3 minutes and 30 seconds in length, including title and credits.
  • Students are able to use their own camera equipment.  A limited number of cameras will be available for students to check out from the SLTC info desk. 
  • All participants are encouraged to complete a brief training program on use of the editing equipment.  Students who completed this program in previous years do not need to repeat training, unless desired.
  • Submissions will not be returned. All submissions and accompanying footage will be available for use by Hendrix College. All films must include 100% original film work. Students may not use copyrighted music.   
  • Films will be showcased to general audiences.  As such, the Festival Committee reserves the right to limit the number of films screened.  Students may submit a maximum of two entries each year.  If both entries are accepted into the festival, they will be paired on the same grouping for audience judging. 
  • Cameras may be checked out for 3 days.  Students who do not return the equipment after 3 days may be disqualified for the competition in fairness to other contestants.  Students may check out the equipment a second time if equipment is not reserved. 
  • Students will complete and submit all necessary subject releases.
