Background of Campus Movie Fest
For nearly 20 years, Campus Movie Fest (CMF) has been providing teams of students with cameras, laptops, support, and anything else they might need to create short movies in a week. The top films enjoy a campus-wide showcase at their school’s red carpet Premiere, giving masses of students the opportunity to share their story on the big screen. Four Jury Award-winning movies from each campus then move on to compete nationally at the CMF TERMINUS Festival in Atlanta, Georgia.
CMF started as a dream for a group of students at Emory University in 2001, realizing how the movie-making experience can foster learning, development, teamwork, and community. Since then, Campus Movie Fest has enabled students to create over 20,000 short films. CMF is the only event of its kind to provide all the necessary equipment (including laptops with editing software, HD cameras, microphones, and headphones) plus training and 24/7 technical support so students can create short movies that are shared with the world.
