WHo are we

BASS is a film festival started by an art student with a passion for film. Our director, Kasey James, started this festival as a way to get more students interested in independent film while creating a platform where Bay Area students can showcase their own films. A FREE entry for submission will begin November 1st 2018, welcoming all junior college and university students from the larger SF Bay Area to enter their short films of any genre. The festival will be held on March 1st in the historic Soda Center at Saint Marys College of California. Three accredited university professors will be judging the entries based on aesthetic, technique, and content. The jury's selection for Short Film Jury Award: Documentary and Short Film Jury Award: Dramatic along with the Audience Award will be awarded cash prizes. We hope you enter your own film or attend to support students of the bay area!
