2019 Summer – Awards & Nominations

Nominations & Awards Spring 2019

Here are the films nominated by Jay, Kick, and the rest of the judging panel in 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.

Please visit the Summer 2019 Film Catalog to see all the talent, the blood, the sweat, and the tears the Summer 19 class has to offer.
