STEVIE U 72 2020

Stevenson University's FMI Club once again has planned its annual Stevie U 72 Film Festival, screening the movies made during this 72-hour filmmaking event on Friday, November 13, 2020, at 7pm (screening link here, or click on the image, above). Sponsored and presented by Canon USA, this event is open to all. 

From 12pm on Friday, November 6, through 12pm on Monday, November 9, participating students, working in small, socially distanced crews, will make, following COVID-19 safety guidelines, short films that they write, produce, direct and edit after receiving the restrictions of genre and other elements at the Friday start. Once the festival closes, our three participating judges––Stevenson University President Eliot Hirshman, Spring 2020 FMI Artist-in-Residence Capella Fahoome, and FMI alumnus DJ Carmon (Class of 2017)––will watch the movies and choose their Top 3, which will each receive donated prizes from our sponsor, Canon. At the end of the screening on Friday, November 13, the virtual audience will then vote on their favorite, which will also receive a prize.

See you on the 13th!
