About Us

Our Mission:

  1. To tell a long-form story and push the boundaries of what is expected of student film-making. Shorts only get you so far, and we want to go farther.
  2. To foster inclusiveness on Northwestern's campus by exposing the film-making process to students of all disciplines.
  3. To change and affect the community in a positive way through art.

What We Do:

Our members annually write, produce, direct, and edit a feature length film (~90 minutes) to premiere in May and to raise donations for the chosen beneficiary of that year.

Our production timeline starts in the summer with screenplay submissions. Then once a script is chosen, we hold crew petitions and casting auditions when the school year starts in fall. Production happens during the winter, and finally we edit and roll out the red carpet in spring.

We are completely student run, and encourage students of all studies and film backgrounds (even if you have none at all) to join our organization so that you can experience college film-making and meet some great people along the way.

Not a student? We accept year-long support, advice, and donations and if you are in town, we invite you to attend the premiere.

It takes a village to make a feature, so we encourage you to participate in any way you can!
