Campus MovieFest and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences are thrilled to showcase the next generation's love of movies. College students from across the country shared their stories about how films have impacted and inspired them. Campus MovieFest interviewed hundreds of students at their CMF events on behalf of the Academy, plus students were invited to submit short videos about their love of movies. We were thrilled to send CMF filmmakers Aneel Khan and Ricardo Humareda to the Oscars® Red Carpet Experience to see the nominees in person and watch the show in the historic El Capitan Theater.

About Campus MovieFest
Campus MovieFest (CMF), the world's largest student film festival and a premier outlet for the next generation of movie lovers, began nine years ago when four students at Emory University provided fellow students with everything they needed - including Panasonic camcorders and Apple laptops - to make movies in one week. Since then, more than 350,000 students have told their stories on the big screen, receiving all the necessary technology and training for free thanks to participating schools and corporate partners.
