Comm Club is excited to finally be gearing up for the school-wide event, Campus MovieFest. 2010 marks the third year that Comm Club has sponsored the festival. Campus MovieFest is a program that provides students with HD Cameras and MacBook Pros (complete with editing software) completely free of charge, allowing hundreds of students to produce their films and compete against other NYU student filmmakers. Students borrow equipment for one week in order to complete a 5-minute short film on any topic or genre. This allows a chance to win recognition as well as prizes. Campus MovieFest's goal, as outlined on their website, is:
"To showcase the next generation of moviemakers and empower people everywhere to share their stories with the world a vision that has provided students the chance to learn skills that will be beneficial throughout their lives."
NYU's Top 16 films will be showcased at a red carpet Grand Finale on April 23 in Cantor. Winners then move on to a regional competition hosted at Lincoln Center, which will be part of the TriBeCa Film Festival this year!
For those of who want to participate, sign up on the website at http://wwww.campusmoviefest.com and come to Kimmel 905 on April 6th to start filming! CommClub is also looking for volunteer judges (as long as you're not competing, you can judge!) to watch student-films and eat pizza. We look forward to seeing you at the upcoming CMF festivities!
