Nominations & Awards Fall 2021

Here are the films nominated by Susan, Jay, and Kick into the final screening. These are not the best films but the films that we believe had unique elements or reflects certain qualities worthy of being showcased. All the teams have put in considerable effort into the completion of their final films. Some have succeeded in achieving their visions, some have failed. Regardless, the teams should all be proud of the work they’ve done.
