Get ready for F&MAD 2018!

The Department of Film & Media Arts will present the 8th annual F&MAD Film Festival, Sunday, September 30th at the iconic Tower Theatre in 9th and 9th. The Festival showcases a juried selection of film and media arts projects from undergraduate and graduate film students at the U. The audience will be treated to a vibrant festival atmosphere and a collection of the best films of the 2017/2018 academic year, featuring a range of short films in genres like experimental, documentary, narrative, animated, screendance, and beyond.

Student film submissions were anonymously screened by a jury who cast the deciding votes on which films will make it to the big screen at the Tower. 16 short films made the cut this year; check out what’s playing:



Heart Strings | By Shujing Zeng

Jelly | By Emmelyn Redd

Chasing the Dragon | By Eduardo Soares

For student film makers, F&MAD Fest is an opportunity to show off their hard work among a community of film-lovers, and to compete for the title of “Best of Fest.” After the final film has screened, audience members will have a chance to cast their vote for their favorite, and a new “Best of Fest” winner will be announced. Last year’s winning film was “Camminatore”” by grad student Angela Rosales Challis. The film has since been shown at more than 15 festivals around the world, including in Greece, Scotland, Argentina, and Bolivia, as well as on campus at the 2017 College of Fine Arts Distinguished Alumni Ceremony. Don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy handpicked student films from the 2017/2018 academic year and to help decide which film will be Best of Fest 2018!
