How would I come up with ideas for a short film?

I am having writers block for starting up my next movie. I want to summit a good film inside the film festival next month but I have not been coming up with any ideas. I would like my film to be involved around campus but I have no idea what would be a good story for it I go to a community college and we do not have dorms so it will be a bit harder to come up with ideas. Does anyone have any ideas on what could be a good short story on campus?

Observe life... but seriously, 1 month? To come up with the idea, write it, execute it and edit it? You should have started a year ago.

Also, your idea should be your own. Write about what matters to you.
If you try to make something based off someone elses "topic" or "headline" it wont be as good as if it came from yourself.

Go out and live and watch people. The best stories are hidden in every day life

Try to find an inspiration in things you like, find this great idea and think what your film will be about) But in details)

Newspaper and magazine headlines, news and ads have lots of ideas hidden in them.
