Annual Film Awards

BGFS recognizes outstanding work developed by our alumni as part of their Film Foundations courses and beyond. The awards are an opportunity for students who have already worked to apply what they’ve learned in class to a project and see it through to a finalized submission for a BGFS Annual Excellence in Filmmaking Award.
