The 2019 Cherry Reel Student Film Festival is Presented by ASUNM Southwest Film Center

"A film festival for student filmmakers, by student filmmakers.”

The Cherry Reel Film Festival has two goals:

  1. To give talented creators a platform to proudly show their work. 
  2.  To enhance the creative competitiveness and collaborative possibilities between student filmmakers in the Albuquerque, NM area.

Last year the 2018 Cherry Reel Student Film Festival had over 70 student films submitted. 17 films were screened at UNM in the SUB theater. Submission genres ranged from HORROR, SCI-FI, COMEDY, EXPERIMENTAL, DOCUMENTARY, ANIMATED SHORT, MUSIC VIDEO and many more! This year YOU can be part of Cherry Reel. 

Regardless if you're a first-time filmmaker looking to submit or a returning filmmaker looking to see how you stack up, Cherry Reel is a film festival for the students, by the students. 

Any inquiries or online submissions can be directed to
