Submit Your Work to ExFEST 2018, ExTV’s Annual Student-Run Film Festival!

The end of the school year is right around the corner! Here at ExTV, that means we are officially accepting submissions for ExFEST 2018! ExFEST is ExTV’s annual film festival made by students for students. Open to all forms of video art, our film festival allows students to compete for a chance to showcase their best work in front of a ExTV-selected jury, win festival awards, and have fun! This will be our 13th year running, and we’re excited to see what’s in store. Each year, ExFEST occurs sometime around the October following summer applications. Our festival is open to all currently enrolled students of SAIC and recent graduates of 2018 (this includes Fall 2017 graduates). We enjoy supporting students of our FVNMA department, as well as anyone who is experimenting with video and wants to screen their work to the masses.
