FMS Awarding $50 for Every Student Film Accepted to Film Festivals

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

In effort to help students send their films to local, national, and international film festivals, the Department would like to award students $50 for every film that is accepted to be screened at a local, regional, national or international film festival. While this is a nominal amount of money, the hope is that it will encourage you to apply, and will pay for the cost of applying. Moreover, if a film is accepted at a festival where the filmmaker is invited to attend, there are travel funds that students might apply for through the School of the Arts (SOTA). Film festivals are 80% more likely to give an award to a film where the filmmaker is present, so we also want to encourage that people travel to screen their films. 

If your work is accepted at a film festival, please send your name, the name of the film, the dates and location of the film festival to either Tamara Falicov or Matt Jacobson.
