Cannes we make it to France?

Hi there! We are the four out of five students from Old Dominion University that will be showcasing our films in the Short Film Corner at the Festival de Cannes in France this summer! We hope you enjoyed our fictional 70s game show. 

Our Journey to Cannes:

Campus Movie Fest (CMF), the largest student film festival in the world, came to ODU in September. CMF gives four Jury Awards to each school and all of the Jury Award winners that competed in 2017 are considered to be showcased at the Festival de Cannes. For the first time ever, all four Jury Award winners from ODU have been selected and five of us get to go! This is a huge honor for all of us, as well as the ODU film program. Unfortunately, the program is very expensive and us poor college kids need as much help as we can get. There is a program fee, airfare, and other expenses we need help with, so everything you can give we are extremely grateful for. 

We need to raise as much money as possible for the February 16 deadline, but we will continue taking donations beyond then because we still have airfare to purchase. 

Thank you very much from the bottom of our filmmaking hearts! This is a dream come true for all of us!
