About Campus MovieFest
Campus MovieFest (CMF), the world's largest student film festival and a premier outlet for the next generation of filmmakers, began eight years ago when four students at Emory University provided fellow students with everything they needed -- including camcorders and laptops -- to make movies in one week. Since then, more than 200,000 students have told their stories on the big screen, receiving all the necessary technology and training for free thanks to corporate partners and schools.
During this year's tour, 75,000 students will participate in over fifty events, earning $400,000 in prizes and the chance to see their movies on the big screen at school red carpet finales and regional grand finales, in addition to showcases on AT&T phones, in-flight on Virgin America, and at Cannes. The events culminate at the CMF International Grand Finale at Paramount Studios June 11-13 2009. Additional information and thousands of CMF films are available online at www.campusmoviefest.com.
