At the festival, awards will be presented for Best Achievement in Overall Production and a People’s Choice Award. The film jury consists of Andrew Douglas, director of Bryn Mawr Film Institute; filmmakers Ben Hickernell and Valerie Temple. The two winning films will have the advantage of the big screen viewing on August 2nd at Bryn Mawr Film Institute.
One of the interesting rule changes for this year’s submission is that the short films are not specific to a pre-chosen theme; the student filmmakers have the freedom to use their imagination and creativity.
