There looks to be about 50 teams from the University of Tampa signed up to participate in this year’s Campus MovieFest. If you see a lot of movie-making going on around campus, this may be why.
“Campus MovieFest (CMF), the world’s largest student film festival and a premier outlet for the next generation of filmmakers, began in 2001 when four students at Emory University provided fellow students with everything they needed — including camcorders and Apple laptops — to make movies in one week. Since then, more than 500,000 students at colleges and universities globally have received all the necessary technology and training to tell their stories on the big screen through film. CMF is free to students thanks to corporate partners and schools.”

If you’re a movie buff don’t forget you can check out DVDs from the library. We have a great collection of movies, including over 100 titles from the Criterion Collection.
