Campus Movie Fest comes to Texas Tech University for first year

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

(Press Release)

This month, the Texas Tech University College of Media & Communication will host the Campus Movie Fest (CMF) for the first time. The event launches on Oct. 9 and runs for a week until Oct. 15.

CMF began in 2001 and has been touring the country giving students the opportunity to showcase their original films, and learn more about the equipment needed to film movies and the necessary training that’s needed to be a filmmaker.

Participation is completely free to students. CMF tour staff provides the training, support and necessary technology students will need to produce their films. Students will have one week to shoot, edit and produce their films for judging.

“CMF provides the technical stuff for your film,” event organizer, vice president of Tech Creative Media Association and creative media industries major, Brennon Holbrook said. “All you have to do is bring an idea. It’s a chance for those who are rooted in media and those who aren’t alike to create something. Creating is more than your name on a billboard or in credits. It’s the student’s chance to put an idea or opinion into the world and maybe change a mind or two.”

At the end of the week, a panel of 12-15 judges will choose the top 16 movies, and they will be screened at a red-carpet premiere Oct. 17. The top four films from Texas Tech will win the Jury Award and move on to compete on the national level at the CMF grand finale in June in Atlanta, Georgia.

Jury winners will receive a one-year subscription to the Adobe Creative Cloud and Amazon Prime Student, the opportunity to apply for the CMF at Cannes Program, and the possibility of seeing their film on Prime Video.

Students can sign up for free here.
