The 20th Annual Columbia University Film Festival showcasing the work of School of the Arts (SOA)
Film Division M.F.A. candidates will run from April 30 to May 10. Forty short films and 13 screenplays will be screened.

The festival is the premiere of short films and feature screenplays created by SOA students. In the past several years, many works have gone on to win awards and recognition at prestigious festivals worldwide, such as Cannes, Berlin, Sundance and Toronto, as well as the Student Academy Awards.

The event offers a chance to discover some of the year's most exciting cinema. From comedy to drama, documentary to mystery, these unique voices combine the art of storytelling with the craft of filmmaking to create unforgettable cinematic experiences.

Shot around the world, using techniques from 35-mm film to the latest digital technologies, this year's work explores diverse themes and topics, reflecting the program's focus on narrative storytelling filtered through the singular vision of each individual filmmaker.
