Here is a highlight reel of some of the 2019 Montage Finalists.
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 2020 Montage Film Festival page and archived for future reference. The program at IU Cinema was judged by people at various schools and both undergraduate and graduate students. 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 2020 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.
