Thank you to all of the friends, family, and Mason community who supported our students during the Virtual Fall Film Showcase. Our online showcase began with a week-long screening of student films ranging from Beginning Video Production, Documentary Filmmaking, Music Video Production, and Senior Capstones. Students participated in live Q&As with audience participation. Monetary awards were donated by our Film at Mason Advisory Board. These prizes were given to our FAVS 498 students who participated in the pitch competition to help fund their senior films in the upcoming semester. Congratulations to our winners and all of the student directors, writers, production, and post-production crew who made films this semester. We are so proud of you.
