Your short film should be about something you know on a personal level. If you are working with film for the first time or are relatively new to the art you won't want to waste time researching a topic or struggling to come up with the right setting, etc.
I would also recommend making the subject somewhat unusual and memorable. For example, filming your dog performing a new trick may be cute but it is not entirely memorable. You might want to try doing an interview with an elderly or street person.

I would agree that it needs to be something you both have an interest and knowledge about. I would also look at what are the "hot" topics in your area or school district.
