Break out the shoeshine and dust off your heels CCC’s Media Club is rolling out the red carpet for the Media Event of the year. Imagine producing a film that can be showcased at a red carpet event. The bright red carpet stretches long across the room leading to a screen showcasing your film to a large audience.
Imagine no more. Cumberland County College is bringing an exciting new event that allows students to not only display their films, but also compete against peers to win cash prizes.
CCC’s Red Carpet Film Festival & Awards Ceremony is the first event of its kind on campus that allows students to submit their films to be showcased to a panel of judges and a wide audience. Designed as a competition and recruitment event, the festival is not only open to students on campus, but also local Cumberland County high school students.
The event will take place in Spring 2014 in the Luciano Conference Center allowing family members and students to view each submission.
For each genre featured in the festival there is a 1st place prize. Winners will receive a $50-$100 Best Buy gift card to aid in the purchase or enhancement of equipment so they can continue to produce and create films. Also featured in the festival is a Facebook Fan favorite award that allows viewers to vote for their favorite-featured film the night of the festival.
CCC’s Red Carpet Film Festival was planned and produced by CCC’s Media Club on campus. It is designed not only as a competition amongst peers, but also as a recruiting tool for high school students to consider CCC as a choice to pursue their education in Communications.
“The Media Club hopes to achieve recognition for the planning and production of the event, awareness of our Communication programs, and pride in the students’ work and showcasing CCC and high school student talent” said Professor Renee Post, Media Club Advisor.
With this highly anticipated event CCC expects its Red Carpet Film Festival & Awards Ceremony to become an annual event. For more information about the Film Festival contact Professor Renee Post at firstname.lastname@example.org or 856-691-8600 x 1470.
