The first annual FMIs – an adaptation of our previous FMI/MAP-sponsored Stevenson Film Festival – took place in the Rockland Banquet Room on the evening of Saturday, April 21, 2018. Over 20 student films screened, with awards – including Best Picture, best Director, Best Actor and Best Actress – announced at the end of the event. The awards jury consisted of outside professionals, recruited by the NBS-FMI club, which organized the event. Well-attended and beautifully orchestrated, the ceremony was a grand testimony to the skills and efforts of our Stevenson FMI students.

The evening's winners were as follows:

  • Best Picture: Beneath the Rain
  • Best Actress: Keeley Nichols
  • Best Actor: Rodney Mitchell
  • Best Director: Kevin Pullias
  • Best Editor: Dylan Borcherding
  • Best Cinematography: Brad Kinckner
  • Best Narrative: Zoe Maliszewskyj
