Campus MovieFest Announces
The 2010 International Grand Finale at Wynn Las Vegas

(ATLANTA, GA) – May 24, 2010 – Campus MovieFest (CMF), the world’s largest student film festival, concludes its 2009-10 tour with its International Grand Finale (IGF) at the remarkable Wynn Las Vegas. From June 10-13, CMF will host student filmmakers from across the globe at a weekend full of events – including screenings of over 200 movies, industry workshops, networking opportunities, alumni gatherings, concerts, and a red-carpet, star-studded final ceremony at the Encore Theater.

 

Thanks to presenting partner AT&T, nearly 75,000 students from universities throughout the world signed up for CMF and received everything they needed to make a five minute movie in a week all for free – including Apple laptops, Panasonic HD cameras, and AT&T Samsung phones. The movies screening at IGF highlight the best of the best from over 50 participating schools, giving students an opportunity to share their movies with their peers, guests in Las Vegas, and industry leaders. Throughout Friday and Saturday, CMF will screen Best Comedy, Best Drama and Best Picture selections from around the country. In addition, CMF will announce the finalists of the Elfenworks Social Justice Award, screen selected movies that aired on AT&T U-verse, and screen AT&T Golden Mobile Finalists from around the country.

“We’re thrilled to invite the best student filmmakers from around the country to Wynn Las Vegas to celebrate their creations. We can’t think of a more fun and exciting location than Vegas, and we can’t wait to show attendees the line-up of events we’ve got planned. Its going to be an amazing weekend and an incredible showcase of college films and music,” said David Roemer, co-founder of Campus MovieFest.

The College Battle of the Bands National Grand Finale, on the evening of Friday, June 11 at Tryst Nightclub, will feature the top four artists selected during a nationwide search. They’ll compete live for prizing and accolades at Wynn Las Vegas.

“Our national search for the next great college artists has turned up some superb talent. We’re really excited about that the national battle at Wynn Las Vegas. The participating artists sound fantastic and we’re expecting a great show at Tryst,” said Michael Seminer, Director of College Battle of the Bands.

IGF concludes with a gala ceremony where the 2010 Campus MovieFest Best Comedy, Best Drama, and Best Picture winners will be announced by special celebrity presenters. Top students during this year’s CMF World Tour will have earned over $400,000 in cash and prizes.

CMF began nine years ago when four students at Emory University provided fellow students with everything they needed to make movies in one week. Since then, more than 250,000 students have told their stories on the big screen, receiving all the necessary technology and training for free thanks to corporate partners and schools. Past winners have walked away with over $2 million in prizes and seen their films on the big screens at CMF events nationwide, at Cannes, at Paramount Studios, and on millions of smaller screens – including AT&T mobile devices and U-verse TV, in-flight on Virgin America, and online.
