Campus MovieFest is a huge event, giving hundred of thousands of students across the world everything they need to create original short movies - all for free. This year, CMF plans to tour more than 60 colleges and universities. During the events, over 75,000 students are equipped for a week with Panasonic HD cameras, Apple laptops, and all the training and support they need. Students also get to see their movies on the big screen at red carpet finales on each campus, leading up to the CMF International Grand Finale in Hollywood in June 2011.
Now, Campus MovieFest's top student filmmakers will get hands-on access to the latest Panasonic 3D camcorders, including the Panasonic HDC-SDT750, during their filmmaking experiences. Students will be selected from the CMF Distinguished Filmmakers Network, made up of award-winning students at CMF events nationwide. Students will focus on different themes for their movies, including a sports theme which will be showcased at Arnold Schwarzenegger's Sports Film Festival in March.
In June 2011, CMF will highlight the best movies - both made using Panasonic HD and 3D camcorders - from the 2010-2011 World Tour at its international Grand Finale, which will feature workshops, guest presenters, industry members, and a gala awards ceremony. Students will receive Panasonic 3D prize packages for the best uses of 3D in their storytelling.
