Call for Entries: 59th CINE Golden Eagle Awards for Student & Youth Media – Deadline: July 1st

The 59th CINE Golden Eagle Awards for Student & Youth Media



Early Deadline: May 27, 2016

(Our lowest entry fees)


Regular Deadline: June 17, 2016


Final Deadline: July 1, 2016


For nearly 60 years, the CINE Golden Eagle Award has propelled emerging talent to amazing heights — from Steven Spielberg (1969) to Ken Burns (1981) to Pixar Animation (1987).


Now we want to champion the next generation 

of great media makers — YOU.


A distinguished jury will select up to five finalists and a Golden Eagle Award recipient in categories for student and youth narrative, animated and documentary films — and every filmmaker receives judging feedback.


Winners and finalists will be honored at CINE Celebrates receptions in New York, Los Angeles and Washington where you’ll meet industry executives, filmmakers, composers, honorees, and have your work honored alongside award-winners and finalists from the 59th Golden Eagle Awards for Professional and Independent Media.


Explore www.cine.org/student for complete rules and eligibility, categories and review criteria. Submit work online through  CINE’s Awards System, FilmFreeway or Withoutabox.


Discounts are available to schools or educators submitting 10 or more productions on behalf of their students. Contact info@cine.org for a discount code.



Media Students: Have your project scored or mixed 

by a Berklee composer/mixer!


We’re thrilled to once again offer an extraordinary opportunity to media students, made possible by the Berklee College of Music’s Film Scoring Department: On a limited basis, CINE can pair student filmmakers with student composers and sound designers from Berklee, named the #2 music school in the entertainment industry by The Hollywood Reporter.


Filmmakers with a work-in-progress in all genres — animation, live action and documentary — are invited to apply to work with a Berklee composer and/or sound designer/editor.


There is no charge to apply or participate, but there are a limited number of spots available, with preference given to filmmakers who require both music and sound.


Films will be accepted on a rolling basis and you will be contacted within one week of submission. The applications will close as soon as all spots are filled (no later than September 23).


Visit www.cine.org/berklee for more information and to submit an application.
