The 7th RenderThis Student Film Festival is now history!

For the first time in Festival history, the same film earned both of the top prizes!  Stranger is Typing by Alex Caucean, a 3rd year Brock Film Studies Student from Wellesley, ON, took home both the Audience Choice and Jury Awards.  Alex earned 2 trophies and a total of $1,100 for his suspenseful film about a lonely young man who goes on an online video chat room to find attractive girls, but gets more than he bargained for.
Filmmakers who took home Runner-up prizes were:
First Runner-up Cory Maddalena (2nd year MA Program in Popular Culture, Brock University) Film: Origami
and Second Runner-up Graham Smith (3rd year Film Studies, Brock University) Film: Nest
New to the Festival was the “Brock University Experience” category.  Filmmaker Cory Maddelena took home the First Place prize for this category: a trophy and $500.
 
A total of seventeen Brock and Niagara College Filmmakers’ films were screened on the evening of Friday, February 3rd in front of a supportive audience in the Sean O’Sullivan Theatre.  Also featured at the event was musical entertainment, an art show, catered snacks and a popcorn and candy treat table.
