Sustainable Syracuse Research Film Festival and Competition: Kick-Off Information Session

Eggers Hall, 220

Add to: Outlook, ICal, Google Calendar

This is a kick-off meeting for students and faculty to learn about the Sustainable Syracuse Research Film Festival and Competition being held in April 2023.

Students from the Newhouse School and the College of Visual and Performing Arts as well as others interested in developing visual media will be introduced and teamed with undergraduate and graduate student researchers of multiple disciplines from across the Syracuse and ESF campuses conducting sustainability research so they can form teams to enter the Sustainable Syracuse Film Festival. Winners will receive prize money.

The inaugural film festival will be a campus-wide event with internal and external judges,  and will be part of the larger Sustainable Syracuse week with research poster competitions and a guest speaker in early April.

The visual media (film and/or animation) will be between five to eight minutes long and will capture the sustainability issue the students are tackling including their findings. Features can be humorous, documentary, investigative, etc. No need for expensive film equipment as we will use iPhones.
