Congratulations to all the teams that made and turned in movies! We hoped you enjoyed screening your films amongst your peers. It’s a treat to show off your films every year, all at once, in one sitting until your butt is numb and your voice is a little weak from cheering.
Below are the 2016 Finalists, followed by the two films chosen by Audience to move on to Saturday Night. Be sure to come out tomorrow night to the Main Event to watch the Finalists, Awards and some surprises, and if you can’t make it- don’t miss the After Party at Nido’s.
