2018 Fall – Awards & Nominations

Nominations & Awards Fall 18

Here are the films nominated by Susan, Aynur, and Jay for the final screening. These are not the best films but the films that we believe had unique elements or reflects certain qualities worthy of being showcased. All the teams have put in considerable effort into the completion of their final films. Some have succeeded in achieving their visions, some have failed. Regardless, the teams should all be proud of the work they’ve done.

Every term, we put out a challenge for the students to make our lives difficult at at the end of term when it comes to selecting our nominations and winners. This class provided us with a challenge like never before. Please visit the Fall 2018 Film Catalog to see all the talent, the blood, the sweat, and the tears the Fall 18 class has to offer.
