Grab your popcorn, it's time for F&MAD Fest 2019!

Sunday, September 22nd the Department of Film & Media Arts will present the 9th annual F&MAD Film Festival, a public screening of student works from undergraduate and graduate film students at the U. Held each year at the charming Tower Theatre in 9th and 9th, F&MAD Fest is a presentation of top-tier student films from the previous academic year. “F&MAD is a celebration of our students’ achievements, and an important, public showcase of the depth and breadth of their talents and interests." Says Andrew Nelson, Chair of the Department. Show up ready to experience an incredible range of genres like experimental, documentary, narrative, animated, screendance, and beyond. 

Each short film submission is under 25 minutes long, allowing the program to include around 10 films per festival. 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.” The audience awards voting is one of the most exciting aspects of the festival and allows the crowd to vote for their favorite film of the evening.  

Student Film Submissions are anonymously screened by a jury who casts the deciding votes on which films will make it to the big screen at the Tower. This year we have ten incredible films in the lineup: 

The End by Sage Bennett
Salty Plastic by Summer Florence
TUBcake by Bethany Joy Burr
Metamorphoses, Book One by Eduardo Ayres Soares 
Beguile by Eden Buxton
The Armor by Mckenzie Smith
Welcome to the Brotherhood! by Dominic Martella
Force Fed! by Dominic Martella
Turn Lights Off by Ali Akbari
Catfished by David Sainz   

Don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy handpicked student films and help decide which film will be Best of Fest 2019!
