Macaulay Honors College will host the 7th annual CUNY Film Festival at Macaulay Honors College. Filmmakers from the wider CUNY community will have the opportunity to promote their own films, review the work of their peers, and engage with industry professionals. The deadline for submission of films for this year’s film festival is February 27, 2015. Any film made primarily by currently enrolled CUNY undergraduates and graduate students, faculty or alumni will be accepted. Films of any genre or length and completed within the last two years will be considered. A panel of expert judges will select ten finalists and three winners by March 10, 2015. The ten selected films will be streamed online to determine the winner of the “Viewers Choice” award. All winning films will be screened and prizes awarded to the top three films at an Awards Gala on March 29, 2015. The gala will be held at Macaulay Honors College and will be open to the public.
The CUNY Film Festival is organized by the Macaulay New Media Lab. Started in 2009 by Daniel Cowen ’11, Macaulay Honors College at Hunter College, it was the first event of its kind to showcase film and media work from Macaulay and the CUNY campuses.
