SimsFilmFest PSA Machinima Challenge

We all have that one cause that we feel very passionate about. It might be LGBTQ+ rights, animal welfare, cancer awareness, or something else entirely. We want you to make a machinima about it.

What is a PSA? A PSA is a Public Service Announcement that brings awareness to something.


  1. Can be made with TS2, TS3, or TS4
  2. PSA can be about any topic you choose.
  3. Needs to be under 5 minutes in length
  4. Keep things G/PG. These are PSAs to bring awareness.
  5. Upload your finished videos to YouTube and send us a link at and we will showcase them on the SimsFilmFest website and across all our socials.
  6. IF there is enough interest/participation we will have the audience vote on their favourite PSA.

Deadline is February 1, 2018

UPDATE: Apparently there needs to be some clarifications on a few points. 

Why is this called a challenge? Is it really a challenge? Yes and no. Minraed started these mini challenges seasons ago. She is the one that named them a challenge. Why? I have clue. She called most things a challenge. I don’t have a better name for it all. If someone else does, lets hear it. As for voting for a favourite, if its something people want, I am for it. It isn’t something that has to be done.

What sort of topics can I use for a PSA? Whatever you want. Ant farming. Mosh pit ettiqute. Why you should clean up after your dog. Condom use. Autism awareness. Animal rights. Literacy.  The evils of Scientology. Whatever you want. It is your project.

The Sims International Film Festival was created in 2010 as a way to foster creativity in The Sims community through machinima, an art form that uses video game footage to make movies. Over the years, as new entries in The Sims franchise were released and new editing methods became available, we’ve seen a lot of changes, but one thing has remained constant: our commitment to showcasing the creativity of this community and inspiring new artists.
