Campus MovieFest, created in 2000 by students at Emory University, has grown into the world’s largest student film festival. The founders at Ideas United, LLC, have had the privilege of sharing their passion with students around the globe while working with great partner companies – including AT&T and Apple – to make the events possible.

Campus MovieFest is a unique film festival because students of all majors and experience level are given everything they need to write, shoot, and edit a short film in seven days.  Campus MovieFest is the only event of its kind to provide thousands of student teams with Apple laptops, Panasonic HD camcorders, and training. In addition, hundreds of local musicians provide the best independent music that students have permission to use as their soundtracks.  CMF is coming to IU and will take place March 26-April 1st and the finale showcase will be April 9th.  The deadline to register is March 26th.  Teams can register online at

The movie-making events culminate in unforgettable finales, with the on-campus showcases attracting thousands of students and staff. 

The finale will be held April 9th, 2009 at the Buskirk-Chumley Theatre.  The jury will award thousands of dollars worth of prizes and awards (check out the prizes here and will be comprised of IU administration, faculty, students, and IU alumni.  We are actively recruiting President McRobbie, Coach Tom Crean, David Anspaugh, Angelo Pizzo, Sue Naegle (HBO President), Michael Uslan (Batman producer) & Mark Cuban to serve on the jury.  Teams can register online at
