New Visions & Voices is a celebration of work completed by students in our Intermediate Production courses. These up-to-eight-minute-long films feature student work from our Narrative, Documentary, Experimental, and Animation classes as well as work from our Prague Study Abroad Program, which specializes in 35 millimeter film. The festival takes place every fall and culminates in a screening of our top ten to twelve finalists. The Niklas Kalborg Production Awards are given to the top two award winners.
