There are many ways that students can use the StudentFilmmakers.com website for research, promotion, and networking.

(1) Research: As a student, you may be researching various topics for your projects, and to stay on top of current filmmaking news, stories, and trends. You might be researching schools for filmmaking certifications and degree programs. You may be in search of industry events, such as workshops, tradeshows, or festivals and call-for-entries that you can participate in. You may be looking to get hired for a project or production, or looking for crew to collaborate with. The StudentFilmmakers.com interactive website has tools for filmmakers and creatives to help you with your research, including an open forums section online where you can ask your questions, post your own answers to members’ questions, and start your own online discussions and threads.
