5 Minute Film Fest!


Pull out your cameras and get creative! Then join in and watch films with your friends at the first ever Honors College 5 Minute Film Fest!

The festival will celebrate the best, the worst – truly all of the films made by UA Honors College students.  We welcome videos of any kind, including commercials, romances, action plots, parodies, music videos, claymation, infomercials, scary films. If you and your friends are willing to put on a show and film it, we’ll take it!*  You can submit as many films as you want.  Winners will receive awards and all judging will be based on audience votes.

The festival will be held in the auditorium in the honors wing of Ozark Hall on Wednesday, April 29, at 6:05pm.  Even if you don’t submit, come watch your friends’ films and cheer them on!  We’ll see you there! (And if any time along the way you wan to know more about the rules, check out honorsblog.uark.edu, or use this link to see our post!)
