For the first time since 2019, students will participate in an in-person award ceremony on Thursday, Oct. 20, at 7:30 p.m., at the David Geffen Theater in Los Angeles. The medal placements – gold, silver and bronze – in the four award categories will be announced at the ceremony.
The 49th Student Academy Awards ceremony on Oct. 20 is free and open to the public, but advance tickets are required. Tickets may be obtained online at oscars.org starting today. The David Geffen Theater is located at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures at 6067 Wilshire Boulevard.
Starting this year, the Student Academy Awards no longer distinguish between domestic (U.S.-based) schools and international (non-U.S.-based) schools for categories. All eligible submissions, regardless of where they are from, now qualify for the competition category the filmmaker selected in their submission application.
The Student Academy Awards were established in 1972 to provide a platform for emerging global talent by creating opportunities within the industry to showcase their work.
