USF Filmmakers Honored at Campus MovieFest Hollywood

(Atlanta, GA) – Campus MovieFest (CMF), the world's largest student film festival, announced the award-winning films representing University of South Florida at Campus MovieFest Hollywood from June 21-23, 2012.

CMF visited University of South Florida this past spring providing equipment, training and technical support to all participating students, faculty and staff to create their own five-minute movie in just one week, all for free. After a panel of campus judges decided the top University of South Florida movies, a red carpet finale was held on-campus to screen the students’ work and announce winning films. These films, along with over 200 other winning films from schools across the globe, will screen at CMF Hollywood and be judged by an industry panel of judges who will determine the winning films from the 2011-2012 Campus MovieFest World Tour.

The following films will represent University of South Florida at CMF Hollywood: 

"The Other Place" created by Brown Bear Productions
"Bad Beat" created by The Kings Gambit
"The Londoners'" created by Ryan Gillarde’s Crew

Additionally, "Dawn" is being recognized as a Golden Tripod Award Finalist in the Best Soundtrack category for its excellence in that particular field.

"We’re thrilled by this year's competing films, and University of South Florida should be proud of their students’ work. We can’t wait for everyone to experience the amazing weekend of events we have planned for them," said David Roemer, co-founder of CMF.

The CMF Hollywood weekend of celebrations are designed to honor the incredible creations of over 75,000 student filmmakers who participated this year. Events include educational workshops and panels led by industry professionals, sneak peak screenings of Hollywood movies, special events, networking opportunities, and our red carpet Awards Ceremony, featuring industry luminary presenters. All students, friends, family members, and general public are invited to attend events and represent University of South Florida at this weekend of events.

Last year’s CMF events welcomed guest presenters and workshop hosts including Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park), Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games), Jack McBrayer (30 Rock), John Cho (Star Trek), James Van Der Beek (Dawson’s Creek), Wes Bentley (The Hunger Games), Rob Corrdry (Children’s Hospital), Alice Eve (The Raven), McG (This Means War), and more. This year's industry line-up will be announced in June.
