Up&Coming 2016

ArtPower offers in-depth programs throughout the academic year for emerging filmmakers, engaging them in workshops and networking opportunities, all leading up to a live student film festival in the spring. Students receive constructive feedback on their films from a panel of expert judges. Some of the most talented directors, cinematographers, and actors walk away with a coveted ArtPower Film Award—it’s the Oscars, ArtPower-style.
