Festival sections
College Student Film
Short or Feature films created by a College Student.
Full Length Fiction
Fiction deals, in part or in whole, with information or events that are not real, but rather, imaginary and theoretical - that is, invented by the author. Although fiction is commonly viewed as a form of entertainment, it may also be used for instructional purposes, propaganda or advertising, or speculation and thought experiments (science and/or philosophical fiction).
Full Length Non Fiction
Non-fiction is a work based on real life facts and information. The assertions and descriptions contained in a non-fiction work are believed by the creator of the work to be factual. These assertions and descriptions may or may not be accurate, and can give either a true or a false account of the subject in question; however, it is generally assumed that authors of such accounts believe them to be truthful at the time of their composition or, at least pose them to their audience as historically or empirically true.
