2018 Spring – Awards & Nominations

Nominations & Awards Spring 18

Here are the films nominated by Susan, Marcelo, 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.

We are happy to say that the quality of the films presented this semester have greatly exceeded our expectations. Please visit the Spring 2018 Film Catalog to see all the talent, the blood, the sweat, and the tears the Spring 18 class has to offer.
