MISSION & OBJECTIVE
It is the mission of the Southern California Business Film Festival to celebrate the business and creative aspects of the entertainment industry through professional events and hands-on experience. Our year culminates in a student-produced competitive film festival showcasing student films from around the world. We strive to bring the innovation of business together with the creativity of film.
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Rooted in the USC School of Business, SCBFF is Marshall’s premier entertainment society dedicated to introducing the entertainment industry to USC's prestigious up-and-coming film and professional talent. We celebrate not only the art of filmmakers, but the professionals who cultivate it. With a hands-on approach to exploring the landscape of entertainment, SCBFF organizes a year of professional events that culminate in an annual film festival showcase attended by prominent industry figures. It is our vision as a student-produced film festival to share our passions of innovation and creativity with likeminded individuals
