The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale Celebrates Student Filmmakers at 10th Annual Cinefest Film Festival

On Thursday, Sept. 1, 2016, The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale took over Fort Lauderdale’s Cinema Paradiso for its 10th Annual Cinefest Film Festival. Presented by the student-run The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale Cinema Guild, the event drew a crowd of more than 120 students, staff, and community members.

With more than 100 submissions, the festival featured a wide array of films. The big winner for the night was Giovanni Aramendiz who took home the Muse Award, and first place in the Narrative Category, for “Un Regard De Famille.” Aramendiz also earned second place in the Narrative Category for “SHE,” first place in Microfilms and Music Videos for “Mimetese,” and second place in the Trailers Category for “Mr. Happy.” He is a 2016 graduate of The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, earning a Bachelor of Science in Digital Filmmaking & Video Production.
  
The 10th Annual Cinefest Film Festival was more than a year in the planning and was developed and executed by members of the Cinema Guild and club sponsor Kyle Farley, one of the school’s instructors. With help from sponsor TheGoApp, the group raised funding, accepted submissions, and scheduled the event’s program.

The mission of The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale’s Cinema Guild is to celebrate and encourage aspiring student filmmakers. Festival public screening programs are designed to highlight the creator as much as the work itself.
