The University of Notre Dame’s Department of Film, Television, and Theatre (FTT) announces the 26th Annual Notre Dame Student Film Festival, taking place Jan. 29-31 (Thursday-Saturday) in the Browning Cinema at the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center.
As in recent years, audience members are invited to vote for their favorite film via text message. The Audience Choice Award will be presented to the student director(s) of the winning film after the final screening. Last year’s Audience Choice Award winner, “The Suicide Disease,” went on to win Best Short Documentary at the Sunset International Film Festival in Los Angeles.
An annual launching pad for student filmmakers as they begin their careers in the film, television and entertainment industry, the Notre Dame Student Festival has featured the first films of future award winners such as Peter Richardson, 2011 Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Award winner for “How To Die in Oregon,” and John Hibey, 2012 Sundance Film Jury Award Winner for Short Filmmaking for “Fishing Without Nets,” as well as numerous others.
