FILM FEST @ UC DAVIS SEEKS SUBMISSIONS FOR 20th FESTIVAL
Now through April 20
For two decades the Film Fest @ UC Davis has showcased hundreds of short films by student filmmakers. Now in its 20th year, the festival is seeking submissions for the annual event to be held in spring quarter.
The Film Fest committee is seeking works that are eight minutes or less in length created by undergraduate or graduate students and recent graduates. Submissions are open to all genres and styles, from narrative to documentary to experimental.
Submissions are open through April 20, 2020 at 5 p.m.
“Twenty years ago, there were a number of students involved in filmmaking,” said John Iacovelli, professor emeritus of theatre and dance and a co-founder of the festival. “I suggested that we could host a competitive film festival in the Department of Theatre and Dance. Then more departments came on board. Two decades later, it has been gratifying to see how the now student-run festival has grown and the impressive quality of the submissions.”

The 2020 festival will be held on May 13 and 14 at the Varsity Theatre in downtown Davis. The festival is co-produced by the Departments of Art and Art History, Cinema and Digital Media, Design, Music and Theatre and Dance.
