Lucasfilm and director J.J. Abrams have announced today that submissions for the official 2016 Star Wars Fan Film Awards are now open to the public on StarWars.com.
The Fan Film Awards is an annual event that welcomes fans to make their own creative Star Wars themed short films.
In the Star Wars Fan Film Awards, fans create their own short films based on the stories and characters of a galaxy far, far away. Genres, tones, techniques, and styles are up to the imaginations of the entrants.
After a three-year hiatus, the Star Wars Fan Film Awards finally returned last year. The talent and inventiveness shown was impressive — most impressive — with films ranging from stop-motion comedies to live-action dramas. See some of the best videos below and stay tuned for more information on next year’s awards!
