The Notre Dame Student Film Festival screens films made by ND undergraduates during the past year as class projects. These students study the art of filmmaking in advanced, intermediate, and introductory film production courses taught in the Department of Film, Television, and Theatre.  All films are shot on location and often feature the acting talents of Notre Dame students and faculty. Audience members are invited to vote for their favorite film via text message, and the Audience Choice Award is presented after the final screening (Sunday, January 28).
