Campus Movie Fest

Campus Movie Fest The World's Largest Student Film Festival Campus Movie Fest was founded in 2001 by four then-students at Emory University. Over the last 17 years, CMF has grown to give more than one million students access to all of the equipment and training they need to make a five-minute film in one week, including Apple laptops loaded with Adobe Creative Cloud, Panasonic HD Cameras, state-of-the-art sound equipment from Sennheiser, tripods, and external hard drives—all for free.

Since 2001, over 800,000 students have told their stories on the big screen, receiving all the necessary technology and training for free thanks to corporate partners and schools.

The countdown is almost over: Moviemaking Week starts APRIL 5!

It’s NOW OR NEVER to get those creative juices flowing and those storyboards going. Because the first rule of Moviefest is: you don’t talk about Moviefest — you dive right in. Sink or swim. Either way, we’re here for it (and for you 😉📹⚕️). Be sure to register TODAY!

Stop the presses! Drop the mics! And say hello to our little friend, Moviemaking Week Info Session and Q&A, which is just around the corner (lurking, stalking, looming in your minds like some glorious, inevitable Thanos) — MARCH 29 from 5-6pm EST.

We’ll provide all the nuts and bolts (basics, logistics, et cetera) — all you have to do is not be square. So doff those FOMO facemasks, take your eyes off TikTok — for a second! — and smash the Zoom link on our event page: https://bit.ly/cmf2022.

BUT, if you won’t be there for *whatever reason* 🙄 — not that we’ll take it personally or anything 😃 — you can easily check out the recording we’ll post after the event. Happy registering and hope to see all your wild, masterful, toothpaste-outta-the-tube movies soon!

TONIGHT! Campus Movie Fest is coming back for its 17th year at San Jose State University and we'll be premiering the top 16 films created by our students.

I love that film festivals have the power to bring people together to celebrate movies. I also love celebrating films by sharing with people some films I have recently watched and enjoyed. I recently enjoyed the 1993 Sundance Film Festival Winner, Ruby in Paradise. It stars Ashley Judd as Ruby, a young woman who moves to Panama City, Florida to get a fresh start in life. Director Victor Nunez created a film with a leisurely pace that allows the audience to really focus on the depth of Ruby’s character and her relatable trials as an independent young woman. It’s a great model for character study, pacing, and feminism in cinema and I can’t recommend it enough. If you’re interested, you can watch it on Amazon Prime, Showtime, or other VOD platforms. I’ve also linked the trailer.
In our 20 years of running Campus Movie Fest, this one is by far the virtual-est! A very special #CMFTerminus2021 launches today and runs through Thursday, culminating in our Golden Tripod Awards Show with surprise guest appearances. Go get your festival on, check out the future of film, or just say "Happy Birthday CMF" at campusmoviefest.com/terminus!
Hey there, movie lovers! Need a new rec? Campus Movie Fest is featuring some of its favorite LQBTQ+ films from over the years to celebrate #PrideMonth at campusmoviefest.com/movies. Use the search feature to explore all these awesome films (and many more...). Happy Pride — and happy viewing!
On one of our favorite days of the year, we present a throwback of Evan, Force-sensitive Director of Campus Movie Fest, making plans to train young filmmaking Padawans across the country (but not before catching up on some hot office goss). Happy Star Wars Day and #maythefourthbewithyou!
