2nd Annual Reynolda Film Festival
Now Accepting Submissions!
As Director and Filmmaker Liaison of the second annual Reynolda Film
Festival, we are both eager and proud to announce the opening of our
Submission Season, which began this past Friday, October 31st. Open to
undergraduate and graduate students, the Reynolda Film Festival is
organized entirely by students for students.
Please encourage your students to submit their films (short or feature
length) to the Reynolda Film Festival online at http://www.withoutabox.com.
The regular submission deadline is Dec. 5, 2008 with a final deadline of
Jan. 9, 2009. Please visit our website or our withoutabox profile
for more information as well as festival updates. The festival will take
place from April 1 - 5 at
responsible for the conception of the Reynolda Film Festival. Last year,
we received submissions from over 15 countries, yet we maintain a
relatively small size and encourage submissions from filmmakers of any
and all levels of experience. Synonymous with our mission statement, we
at the Reynolda Film Festival promise to inspire, entertain, and
challenge our audience and student filmmakers.
This is the Reynolda Film Festival's second year. After an
overwhelmingly successful inaugural year, we are once again excited
about the potential of the festival to provide undergraduate and
graduate film students with an event in which they can showcase their
work, network with other aspiring filmmakers, and reward their
creativity with prizes that will continue their pursuit of filmmaking.
The success of this year’s event depends on the support from
institutions like CCNY in promoting the festival to student filmmakers.
Spread the word!
