About the Festival

October 22-23, 2015 – Pardoe Theatre, HFAC

The BYU Final Cut Film Festival is a student-produced, student-created film festival. Over a period of several evenings, we screen a collection of the best fiction films, documentaries, commercials, and animations that students create here at BYU. Final Cut is sponsored by the BYU Theatre and Media Arts department and the Student Film Association. The purpose of this festival is to encourage students to create and watch meaningful and creative media. Festival submissions are open to all current BYU students.
