Interested in bringing CMF to your school?

Campus MovieFest (CMF), the world's largest student film festival, has already enabled over ONE MILLION students around the globe to create short movies and see them on the big screen. Participants produce thousands of short movies during innovative, multi-week events that provide all the necessary technology, training, and local music. Students on your campus will never forget walking down the red carpet and celebrating their own creations. Campus MovieFest was created by four students at Emory University in 2001; now the team at Ideas United (IU) has the privilege of sharing the event with the world. IU looks forward to discussing how your school can be a part of the 2015-16 CMF Tour.

Why CMF?

Campus MovieFest is the only event of its kinds that provides all the laptops, camcorders, training, and support needed for teams of students to make short movies. Some of the unique benefits of CMF include the following:

  • CMF is for all students -- not just filmmakers -- as it celebrates creativity, excitement, and teamwork
  • Students have one week to create amazing short movies -- comedies, dramas, documentaries, and more 
  • The movies are judged by a panel of students and staff, and prepared for your school's CMF Finale
  • Students get to see their movies on the big screen, earn great prizes, and always remember their night as stars
  • All student movies are posted online at campusmoviefest.com so the students can share their stories worldwide
  • Students gain important skills working with the technology and developing teamwork. They apply their new-found talents to classes, student groups, and careers.
  • Top student films showcased for millions online, in-flight on Virgin America, at Cannes, and beyond
  • School winners are featured at CMF Hollywood in front of a globe audience, with past venues including Lincoln Center, Paramount Studios, Waner Bros., Universal Studios, and more.

About Campus MovieFest

Campus MovieFest (CMF), the world’s largest student film festival, began in 2001 when four students at Emory University provided fellow students with everything they needed — including camcorders and Apple laptops — to make a movie in one week. Today CMF is a premier outlet for the next generation of filmmakers, with more than one million students at colleges and universities worldwide getting the chance to tell their stories through film. Thanks to corporate partners and schools, CMF is completely free for students.
