Rollins College Filmmakers Honored at Campus MovieFest Hollywood
May 17, 2012
Campus MovieFest (CMF), the world’s largest student film festival, recently announced the award-winning films representing Rollins College at Campus MovieFest Hollywood from June 21-23, 2012.
CMF visited Rollins College this past spring providing equipment, training, and technical support to all participating students, faculty, and staff to create their own five-minute movie in just one week.
After a panel of campus judges decided the top Rollins College movies, a red carpet finale was held on-campus to screen the students’ work and announce winning films. These films, along with over 200 other winning films from schools across the globe, will screen at CMF Hollywood and be judged by an industry panel of judges who will determine the winning films from the 2011-2012 Campus MovieFest World Tour.
The following films will represent Rollins College at CMF Hollywood:
“Losing Our Heads” created by Electric Ocean
“The Necklace” created by Hungry Productions
“What My Grandfather Left Us” created by Team Tall
The CMF Hollywood weekend of celebrations are designed to honor the incredible creations of over 75,000 student filmmakers who participated this year. Events include educational workshops and panels led by industry professionals, sneak peak screenings of Hollywood movies, special events, networking opportunities, and a red carpet awards ceremony featuring industry luminary presenters.
CMF began 11 years ago when four students at Emory University provided fellow students with everything they needed to make movies in one week. Since then, more than 500,000 students have told their stories on the big screen, receiving all the necessary technology and training for free thanks to corporate partners and schools. Past winners have walked away with over $2 million in prizes and seen their films on the big screens at CMF events nationwide, at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival, and on millions of smaller screens – including in-flight on Virgin America and online.
