BIG SCREEN XVIII
What’s better than watching your film on the big screen? Watching your film at the Big Screen!
For 18 years, Cinema Art + Science has been celebrating the work of our creative and talented students.
Join the celebration and be a part of the tradition by entering your film in this year’s Big Screen.
Winning films will be screened on Thursday, April 3, 2014. Trophies and cash prizes will be awarded including:
$2,000 Best of the Fest
$1,500 Audience Award
$ 500 Cinematography Award
$ 500 Editing Award
Entry forms are available here or in the Cinema Art + Science office at 1104 S. Wabash, Suite 301.
Deadline for entries is Thursday, March 6, 2014.
Created in 1997 by Cinema Art + Science staffer Eileen Long, the festival serves as an opportunity to showcase the talents of students in a juried setting, but to also give student filmmakers a chance to get together with faculty, family and friends in an end-of-year celebration of their work.
“What started as an opportunity to get our students together to form a community of filmmakers, has grown into something we could never have imagined,” states Long. “I am constantly in awe of their talents, and I’m so pleased that the department supports this annual event. It’s a great time for everyone involved.”
The Big Screen has become a calling card for the department, promoting both students and the program alike. Winning Big Screen films have gone on to screenings in Los Angeles for alumni in the industry, as well as the prestigious Cannes Film Festival.
Big Screen took place on April 25, 2013 in Film Row Cinema, 1104 S. Wabash, 8th Floor.
