Campus Movie Fest at UF!

Campus Movie Fest Helps University of Florida Students Make a Movie in a Week!

ATLANTA (Aug. 2019) – Campus Movie Fest (CMF) is heading back to the University of Florida! The
2019-2020 CMF tour is headed to over 50 colleges and universities around the U.S., giving students
everywhere the equipment, training, and opportunity to share their stories on film.

The Challenge
CMF at UF launches on January 29th. Students have one week, until February 4th, to make their
best possible five-minute film. The CMF Tour staff provides training, support, and of course, amazing
equipment, including a laptop loaded with creative software, a Panasonic HD camera, and sound
gear.
What’s the catch? There isn’t one! Thanks to CMF’s partners, participation is completely free for
students. More than one million students have participated in CMF since it began in 2001. Students
can sign up for free at CampusMovieFest.com/UF.

Prizes, Prizes, and More Prizes
At the end of the week, judges rate the submissions, and the top 16 movies from UF will screen at a
red carpet premiere on February 7th. Friends, family, and fans are all invited to join the student
filmmakers in celebrating a week of incredible accomplishments. The top four films from UF win the
coveted Jury Award, and will move on to compete on the national level in June at CMF Terminus:
Conference + Film Festival. CMF Jury Award winners will also have the chance to apply for the CMF
Cannes Program. To celebrate the achievements of UF’s most outstanding filmmakers, Silver Tripod
Awards will be given in specific categories, including directing, editing, performance, and more!
Students can also compete in the Elfenworks Hope in Social Justice category, which highlights
injustice and inspires change, with the national winner taking home $10,000!

CMF Terminus: Conference + Film Festival
All Campus Movie Fest participants are invited to celebrate a year of incredible student films at CMF
Terminus Conference + Film Festival in June 2020 in Hollywood, California. They’ll participate in
hands-on workshops, watch the best CMF films, and have opportunities to network with industry
leaders and celebrities.

About Campus Movie Fest
Campus Movie Fest, the world’s largest student film festival, is the premier platform for the next
generation of filmmakers. Founded in 2001, CMF began when four students at Emory University
decided to give their friends and classmates all the equipment they needed to make a short film in a
week. Today, more than one million students at colleges and universities worldwide have received all
the necessary technology and training to tell their stories for free, thanks to corporate partners and
schools. Campus winners move on to compete at CMF Terminus, a four-day film conference and
awards ceremony, earn professional and educational opportunities, see their work at the Cannes
Film Festival, and much more. Find out more at CampusMovieFest.com.

Business – a Force of Good?

Are you interested in using the power of business as a force for good?

Spring 2020 – Mod 4 – UF Business for Good Lab: Social Impact & Sustainability Consulting

ENT 4934 – Special Topics – class # 26042 / section #1E88 T,R | Period 7 – 8 HGS 140

B Corps—like Patagonia, TOMS, and Ben & Jerry’s —are “for-profit companies certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.”

B Corporation certification is to business as Fair Trade is to coffee, USDA Organic to apples, or LEED to green building.

UF’s Social Impact & Sustainability Initiative (https://news.warrington.ufl.edu/entrepreneurship/importance-of-the-social-impact-sustainability-initiative/) in the Entrepreneurship & Innovation Center is launching a collaborative program, in partnership with Florida for Good (https://floridaforgood.com), to help Florida companies achieve B Corp certification by working with teams of UF student consultants. This program is designed to connect students to aspiring B Corporations, including startups in the greater-Gainesville community and other Gator-grown businesses across Florida. The Business For Good Lab offers students an opportunity to engage in experiential learning projects (earning credit for ENT6930) to deepen their knowledge of social impact & sustainability.

You’re invited to join us at our Launch event to learn more about the power of B Corps, the certification process, and the companies that will be involved in this exciting experiential learning opportunity.

Tuesday March 10th, 2020 2:45-3:45pm
