MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The Reynolda Film Festival promises to inspire, entertain, and challenge viewers and student filmmakers alike.
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
WAKE-TV, Wake Forest University's student-run television station, is proud to present the 6th Annual Reynolda Film Festival, which will be held at the Wake Forest University campus in Winston-Salem, North Carolina on April 1 - April 5. This year's festival will feature narrative, documentary, animation, and experimental films of all lengths from student filmmakers.
The festival is primarily a student one and, therefore, places education as its highest priority. Both student and non-student films may be submitted to the festival and screened during the festival itself, but only student films will be placed in competition for awards.
Due to its pedagogical nature, the festival hosts a number of panel discussions and special guest speakers along with film screenings throughout the week. In the past, we have received work from over fifteen countries abroad, and we have hosted a variety of guest speakers, including some from studios like Pixar and some from films like "The Twilight Saga: New Moon", and "The Pirates of the Caribbean." Keynote speakers included Spike Lee, Jason Reitman, and Morgan Spurlock.

All student films must have been completed by a student filmmaker who was enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program no earlier than January of 2009.
All student submissions must be accompanied by a copy of that filmmaker's student identification card.
The Reynolda Film Festival reserves the right to summarily reject submissions deemed by the Festival, in the Festival committee's sole discretion, to be patently offensive or primarily commercial in nature.
