Festival Name: Campus MovieFest
Location: Atlanta, GA, United States
Campus MovieFest (CMF), the world's largest student film festival and a premier outlet for the next generation of filmmakers, began eight years ago when four students at Emory University provided fellow students with everything they needed -- including camcorders and Apple laptops -- to make movies in one week. Since then, more than 250,000 students have told their stories on the big screen, receiving all the necessary technology and training for free thanks to corporate partners and schools.
During this year's tour, 75,000 students will participate in over fifty events, earning $400,000 in prizes and the chance to see their movies on the big screen at school red carpet finales and regional grand finales, in addition to showcases on AT&T phones and in-flight on Virgin America. The events culminate at the CMF International Grand Finale at Paramount Studios in June 2010.
