The Faculty Documentary Competition showcases both long-form and short-form documentaries produced by faculty in the last two years. Entries will be accepted from November 15 – December 15 and winners will be showcased an awards ceremony at the BEA Convention in Las Vegas in April.

Faculty Documentary Categories:
FD1 – Short Form Video or Film Documentary (under 40:00)
FD2 – Long Form Video or Film Documentary (40:00 and longer)

Special Submission Requirements For Documentary:

Promotional videos are not allowed. Therefore, a sponsor/funding source of a submitted documentary cannot also be its subject (e.g. a historical documentary about your school cannot be funded by your school). This includes ‘in-kind’ support beyond what is normally offered in producing outside documentaries. Promotional videos are entered under the Faculty Video.

To be eligible, the ENTIRE piece must be submitted for review. No partial submissions are allowed.”

The Competition Chair has the right to either reject or re-assigned an entry that does not meet these guidelines.

Please read the Faculty Competition Rules to verify that your entry meets all eligibility requirements for submission.
