Congratulations to our cinema students who had films selected for the Virginia Student Film Festival.
The festival was held on Feb. 20 at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.
Woody Chapman's film "Fading Felt," where a formerly famous Sesame Street puppet star, Flynn, attempts to find fame again, won Best Narrative. "Fading Felt" will also be screened at the upcoming Richmond International Film Festival and Chattanooga Film Festival.
The following students screened films at the Virginia Student Film Festival:
The festival is open to undergraduate students enrolled in any university in the United States. Students can submit their films into one of four genres: narrative, documentary, experimental, and music video. Each genre is evaluated by panel of judges that have extensive experience in the film and television industry.
The Virginia Student Film Festival (VASfilm) is a student-run festival that seeks to celebrate and give a voice to student filmmaking at the undergraduate level. The festival was founded in 1997 by the Filmmakers’ Society (FMS), a CIO at the University of Virginia, as a means to showcase its members’ work.
