Ball State’s annual film festival is back and now taking entries.

Quentin Basnaw, a freshman telecommunication video production major, is a part of one of the films that will be judged in the coming months. 

Basnaw is also the producer for the film “The Fine Print.” The film is a collaborative work about a campus game show. He said the opportunity of a student film festival is great for young filmmakers to show off the work they’ve created.

The festival committee invites faculty members from the telecommunications, theater and English departments to judge the various student films at the festival, said festival co-chairperson Zach Watson. 

Even if students don't have experience with filming, Basnaw recommends submitting video projects to the festival. 

“Just go out and do it," Basnaw said. “Go out and film. Have fun. You’ll just get better at it as you go.”
