Named in honor of Richard Gollin, Professor Emeritus of English and founder of the Film and Media Studies (FMS) Program, the annual festival gives University of Rochester undergraduates the opportunity to gain recognition, see their films on the big screen, and win cash prizes. All prize money is sponsored by a generous endowment from Mr. Gollin.


A panel of faculty members associated with the FMS program selects the winners and honorable mentions. On the evening of the festival, student films will be screened and winners will be announced. Cash prizes are awarded to the first, second, and third place filmmakers.

Submissions for the 2024 festival are now closed.

Join us on Tuesday, April 30th, 2024 at 6pm as we screen this year's entries and hand out awards. It starts at 6pm in Wegmans Hall, Room 1400. Refreshments will be served and it's free and open to all.
