Alternative programming celebrates some of the most underrated and underseen talent on the big screen. In honor of awards season, we want to highlight the newest FSU student voices in cinema. We want to see your vision come to life. We want to engage with your creative voice.
This spring, we’re hosting the first ever “Askews” Short Film Contest, hosted by the Askew Student Life Center. Before a screening of The Favourite on April 5, 2019 at 7:15 pm, we will show the top 5 contenders for the golden Askew statue. After the screening of our feature film, we will announce the 1st and 2nd place winners. In addition to the golden Askew, the 1st and 2nd place winners will receive a Red Couch Treatment certificate.
Submissions for the contest will be accepted from now until March 31st, 2019
The Alternatives Chair (Alexandra Fouquet) and Vice Chair (Bethany Geltner) will select the top films (no more than 5) to be shown before the feature screening. The filmmakers of the top films chosen will be contacted before the event. However, the two winners will only be announced after the feature screening. The criteria for selection will be creativity, originality, and integrity.
