Students Compete for Oscar-style Film Awards

2/18/2011 —

Hollywood isn’t the only town gearing up for a glamorous awards season. The Nittany Lion Film Fest, a student-run digital video event at Penn State Brandywine, will culminate with a public screening and awards ceremony this April. Participants are asked to depict some aspect of student life or academic course work content in a short film, which will be judged and the winners announced at a campus-wide, Oscar-style premiere.

The campus is providing access to computers, cameras, editing software and training, while students are responsible for their script, cast, film and editing. Submissions are due by March 28. A panel of judges will select the top entries and winners for each category will receive prizes for themselves and their teams. The festival is open to all currently enrolled Penn State Brandywine students and alumni.

A number of information sessions will be held on campus to help students learn iMovie and other techniques for creating their films. Upcoming sessions will be held on Monday, Feb. 21 at 12:30 and 4 p.m. in the Commons Building, room 203 and on Tuesday, Feb. 22 at 11:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. in the Main Building, room 205.
