As the Imperial presence spreads to most systems, Palpatine calls the scattered Jedi order ineffective. Their protests are denounced as treason, and all Jedi are declared traitors and are now fugitives of the Empire. Looking for a way to turn the tide in this battle, both the surviving Jedi and the Empire are looking for a mystical Jedi artifact said to give the bearer great power...

Star Wars: The Jedi Saga
The Jedi Saga This Star Wars film takes place in between Episodes II and III. Few Jedi remain. The council grows weak and is almost empty. The Jedi desperately seek leads to the indentification of the Sith Lord responsible for war. Jedi Master Oni Cay-Qel is sent to rendezvous with the leader of an alien militia who possesses critical information on the parties involved with the creation of the clone armies--including the identity of the Sith Lord. Shortly after, Master Cay-Qel's transmission is lost. His Jedi emergency beacon is subsequently located on the planet Veridan IV. Jedi Knight Ro Sajec, returning from a mission close by, receives orders from the Jedi Council to investigate the disappearance of Master Cay-Qel while the council organizes a rescue team with the few Jedi they have left.

Emergence of the Sith
Emergence of the SithAfter learning of an illegal spice-refining operation, the Republic has dispatched a Padawan learner on his first mission. Once there, Subo Dai is aided by Bothan field agent H'wai Zark who confirms there is, indeed, an illegal operation under way. As he tries to relay this information to his Jedi master, Shin Dinn Kada, he and the Bothan are attacked on the planet and a fierce battle ensues. It is a fight between good and evil in a struggle for power over the Trade Federation.

Official award-winning fan films
Fan Film Awards

Other unofficial, no-award-winning fan films...
Which leads slate.com to ask,"Do fans make better movies than George Lucas?"

Also Not Spoofs (they just include Star Wars elements)
Art of the Saber
Art of the Saber
A light saber fight sequence with the flavour of a Hong Kong martial arts action movie. This short is set in a dense forest, where a young man, willing to leave his loved ones behind to help fight in the Revolution, clashes with an enemy in a battle where only one will remain standing.

Think the Star Wars mythology of the primacy of good over evil is cool? Pick up a Bible and read it. The reality is even cooler.
