Back in 2002 Lucas films created the Star Wars Fan Film Contest, a contest created to embrace the fan film base of Star Wars. It ran strong for many years but was retired back in 2012. Now…..they have returned! That’s right the Star Wars Fan Film Contest is back to celebrate our creativity and love for the characters and galaxy that has been in our hearts for many many years. Entries can be submitted from now until January 16th 2015 and awards an be won in the categories of Animation, Non-Fiction, Comedy, Spirit of Fandom, Visual Effects, Audience Choice, and Filmmaker Select. Winners in each category will have their films shown by Lucas Film President  Kathleen Kennedy at the Star Wars Celebration event in Anaheim California, April 2015.

Here is the official link to to enter: Star Wars Film Contest

“The Star Wars Fan Film Awards are a wonderful way for us to acknowledge the extraordinary talent and passion of our fans that have supported us throughout the years. Since Star Wars has inspired so many to take up a camera and begin their own film making careers, we’d like to share some of that inspiration with an audience and encourage those filmmakers to follow their bliss. I’m looking forward to witnessing the incredible creativity I know our fans are capable of.”
