NCCC Film & Animation Festival

Saturday, May 9, 2020

The NCCC Film & Animation Festival is an annual event held each spring on the college’s Sanborn campus. The event brings together filmmakers and animation artists from all over Western New York and beyond. Topping the event is an international film competition in which awards are given to filmmakers in a variety of categories. A $200 prize is awarded to the best films in the following categories: Drama, Comedy, Animation, Documentary, Music Video, Horror, and Experimental. Judges for the contest include filmmakers, animators, actors, and musicians and other professionals in the field. The event is sponsored by NCCC’s Digital Media Department, Animation Department, and Public Communications Department, along with the Digital Filmmakers Club, and the college’s Office of Student Life. Admission to the festival is free and food and refreshments are served all through the day. Three additional $100 prizes are awarded to local filmmakers in the "Best of 716" category: Best High School Student Film, Best College Student Film, and Best of the Festival.
