Augsburg Film Festival Winners

submitted by

Augsburg University Fine Arts Film Scholars hosted the first annual intercollegiate student film festival on April 21st. Over 60 attendees viewed films from several Minnesota Colleges and Universities. Filmmakers and fans posed for pictures at our photo wall, enjoyed snacks, and participated in a Q&A with filmmakers whose work screened.

The work was selected from 35 entrants, juried, and judged. Awards were given to work that exemplified creativity, technical skills, and storytelling. Winners received a hand-crafted custom medallion and a certificate.

Congratulations to all the winners and the film scholars for throwing an awesome event!
