1st Annual Student Shoot-Out

Directed by: Various



Chicago's got Talent! Film-making talent, that is! The list of film schools and classes in Chicago is daunting - Chicago Filmmakers, Columbia College Chicago, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Tribeca Flashpoint Media Arts Academy, University of Chicago, UIC, Northwestern, Loyola, Depaul, City Colleges of Chicago...you get the idea. So which is the best? YOU get to decide in our First Annual Student Shoot-out of Chicago. A selection committee chose from over 50 short films submitted by teachers, students, and/or alumni with only one requirement: the film was created and produced for class. Our audience ballot will decide which school gets to take home the Chicago's Best Trophy, including unlimited bragging rights - until next year.
