Student Journalists who either write for the university paper or who have an established culture/entertainment/film blog on their own are encouraged to apply for press accreditation. 

Please apply at , please make sure to include a link to your blog or samples of your work.

Press accreditation is an invitation to the whole festival as well as to the press screenings. You will need to RSVP for all screenings you want to attend. 

We have nine advance press screenings the week before the festival starts and six during the festival followed by two 30 minute video sessions with a visiting writer-director or, on occasion, an actor involved with the film.  One will be for the film that was just screened and another for one of the films screened the week before.

We want the students to commit to at least three to five morning video sessions.  The schedule of the press screenings is 4/18-20 at 10am, Noon and  2pm on all three days and on April 24 & May 1st at 9:30, April 25-28 at 9:00 am.  

For films that already have U.S. Distribution, we ask that reviews be held until the commercial opening.  We encourage blogging about the program, events and free screenings! 


Titles and dates and times to be announced before Mid-April 2017.
