Our 2021 Theme
Acceptance: The willingness to believe in new ideas and find agreement to difficult circumstances.

The theme for SWAN Film Festival 2021 is Acceptance. We have entered a period of continued uncertainty. And from this there is one common element: acceptance. It was the perfect time to have important conversations on accepting, progressing, growing, and developing.

We encourage students to think outside the box as the theme is entirely open to interpretation. There is no limit or suggestion on how the theme may be incorporated into the film or animation.
