New campus-wide creative awards announced

This week, the creative spirit is being celebrated across Northeastern Campus with the announcement of a competition in guerrilla filmmaking and an award for art, performance, or research relating to Jewish studies.

Campus MovieFest


NUTV is sponsoring this year’s Campus MovieFest, a filmmaking competition that gives students the opportunity to showcase their work and win prizes (including the chance to have their short film shown in Hollywood).

Competing students will create a 5 minute short film over the course of a week using cameras and laptops provided by CMF, which is, upon submission, judged by a group of their peers, faculty, and staff.

CMF launches March 13, 2013, with film submissions due on March 19.
