Film Festival For First-Year Students (F4)
This year's theme was... Chasing Your Dreams: Your First Year Experience at UNCW
What is it?
F4 is a film festival exclusively for first-year students at University of North Carolina Wilmington enrolled in UNI 101 (First Year Seminar) or UNI 201 (Transfer Seminar). Students create a story about their first-year experience. Videos are 4-6 minutes in length and are created, starring, and directed by students. Videos were judged in several categories by panelists including faculty, staff and students. The Top 10 films submitted are shown at The Premiere at Lumina Theater on November 18, 2015. The topic for videos this year is above. The video below is a montage of last year's top ten films.
Entrants were encouraged to make their videos concerning the topic above and students can work individually or in groups. Any student enrolled in First Year or Transfer Seminar in Fall 2015 are eligible to submit their entry starting September 1, 2015 and entry is open until November 11, 2015.
Entries can be submitted either via email or by dropping off a DVD. Links to videos created and hosted on websites such as YouTube or Vimeo can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. DVD submissions can be dropped off at University College on the first floor of DePaolo Hall. Please label both digital videos and DVD submissions with all student names and emails who shot the film. All submissions will be judged using the following rubric.
