Share Your Story on the Silver Screen—Enter the Annual Undergraduate Film Festival

This is an open call from the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences to all aspiring student filmmakers. Directors, editors, cinematographers, actors and actresses, screenplay writers—any NSU undergraduate students interested in developing a short film—are encouraged to apply for the seventh annual Undergraduate Film Festival.

Students of all experience levels are invited to participate. The college will host an informative workshop designed to teach you various facets of filmmaking.

Undergraduate Film Festival Workshop

Thursday, Feb. 7
4:30–6:30 p.m.
Mailman-Hollywood Building | Room 309

Film Festival Guidelines
Student participants will form groups of four or five crewmembers to create a short film (three to eight minutes) in one of the following genres: narrative, documentary, or avant-garde. Each film must incorporate an aspect of “Life and Death,” the college’s 2012–2013 academic theme. While non-students may contribute to a film’s creation, each group’s writer/director must be a current NSU undergraduate student.

Completed films will be judged in April and screened during the 2013 Undergraduate Student Symposium, held at NSU on Friday, Apr. 12. Prizes will be awarded for top submissions.

For more information or to sign up for the film festival, contact Weylin Sternglanz, Ph.D., associate professor at the college, and Chetachi Egwu, Ph.D., assistant professor at the college.
