Film Festival 2014

Hosted by Robert Morris University

A screening of student work. Submitted by Mary Russell Robert Morris University. Now accepting student video/film shorts.


Chicago has a wealth of talent and energy, especially on its college campuses. RMU is pleased to offer an opportunity to showcase local talent and further solidify our vast creative community. This inaugural festival will highlight student work from local universities and colleges in the Chicago loop area, and will provide students an opportunity to be recognized and awarded for their accomplishments.

In conjunction with Unesco's 2013 environmental focus, "The Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013", students will submit short works that have been created around the theme.

Winning films will screen at the Gene Siskel Film Center on February 12, 2014. An awards ceremony will follow the screening.


Work should reflect Unesco's topic entitled "The Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013". The title "Planet at Risk" is one of four themes (A Planet to Discover, A Planet Supporting Life, A Planet Organized by Humans). Students should feel free to explore the Unesco's website "Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013" for inspiration and may respond to any of the four themes.
