The West coast is the best coast. And it's about to get better. The NorCal Tour of Campus MovieFest is making its return to the Bay Area for the 2013-2014 Tour! Capitalizing on last year's Bay Area success, these 4 tour members were hand-picked to deliver to you the ultimate CMF experience! Feel free to connect with us via Twitter! We're always willing to give you friendly film advice, or tell you a funny joke!
Nishant is the face, voice, and hair of the NorCal tour. He hits the ground running with anticipation of every student on every campus hearing the buzz about CMF. If you see Nishant wandering the streets of the Bay Area, be sure to say 'Hi' and offer directions, because there's a good chance he's lost.

Ben is from Vermont. Ben does not believe in ghosts. At the age of 5, Ben walked into a glass table, which scared his cheek for life. Ben often thinks of dinosaurs and the limits of space. Ben does not smile. Sometimes, Ben hears voices; they tell him to smile. Staplers remind him of death. Ben does not like staplers. In the future, Ben will conquer Poland.
Lian was born in Miami in 1988 in a hospital she built with her own hands. As far back as she can remember, she always wanted to be a gangster. That didn’t work out so she deferred to her fallback plan of studying Hospitality Management at the University of Central Florida. Her talents include winning games of chance, feigning interest in boring stories, and tying shoes the correct way. By the end of her time with Campus MovieFest she hopes to accomplish world peace.
Andrew Wong - SFSU Campus Rep
Andrew Wong is a filmmaker from Modesto in California's Central Valley. He now attends school at SFSU acting as one of the student representatives for the SF Bay Area. When the tour crew comes around he springs into action and lends a hand to CMF in any way possible. Wind him up and see him go! His favorite meal is breakfast, he loves long walks on the beach, and, armed with a camera and an idea, he hopes to bring inspiring and influential stories to the screen for all to enjoy. If you see CMF on your campus, he'll be the one with the best hair. Andrew Wong! Coming to a campus near you!

Ish loves chai, knits on BART, is a Beth Grant admirer, and can't multitask while talking on an Android. He also loves the woods and when feeling more adventurous visits abandoned locations day or night. Black cherry soda is his preferred soft drink of choice ---- he worships any bar that has them! Red pandas are his favorite in the animal kingdom. He is thoroughly immersed with film societies & organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area, and even fed James Franco's family once! You can find him in local film festivals or in production work for ultra low budget movies. Say hi and both of you will be confused.
