The 2018-2019 Campus Movie Fest (CMF) at UNCG begins March 13 and runs through March 19. During that week, students will be provided the equipment, training, and opportunity to share their stories on film. The resulting five-minute student films will be rated by CMF judges, with the best 16 films being screened at a red-carpet premiere on March 23. Participation is completely free for students.
The top four films will win the Jury Award, which means they will move on to compete on the national level at the CMF Grand Finale in June. Jury Award winners will also receive a one-year subscription to both Adobe Creative Cloud and Prime Student, the chance to apply for the CMF at Cannes Program, and the possibility of seeing their film on Prime Video. To celebrate the achievements of UNCG’s most outstanding filmmakers, Silver Tripod Awards will be given in specific categories, including directing, editing, performance, and more. Students can also compete in the Elfenworks Hope in Social Justice category, which highlights injustice and inspires change, with the national winner taking home $10,000.
More than one million students have participated in CMF since it began in 2001.
