We receive lots of great work every year, many thanks to all the incredible student filmmakers on creating amazing films. All films submitted will be included in the 2022 Montage Film Festival page and archived for future reference. The showcase program is typically programmed by people at various schools across campus. The programmed films are not only chosen for their quality, but also for their ability to fit well into a varied, 90-minute, program that displays the diversity of filmmaking styles that come out of Indiana University. For this reason, some films are nominated for awards, but aren’t part of the program that will be screened on the night of the festival. Again, a page for the 2022 Montage Film Festival will be created to celebrate all filmmakers and films submitted.

Award winners will be announced the night of the festival.

The festival is hosted by The Media School; IU Cinema; the Department of Theatre, Drama, and Contemporary Dance; the Jacobs School of Music; and the School of Art, Architecture, and Design.
