Red Chair Film Festival - Best Film, Best Cinematography

RedChair is a student Film Festival at Miami International University of Art & Design. It was created by students for students. Throughout an entire year the film students conceptualized, produced and refined their cinematographic stories. Diverse genres collided on the screen—drama, comedy, sci-fi, horror, action and thrillers. A professional panel of judges selected the best eight short films screened during the festival on August 3 at the Wynood’s O’Cinema. The 2017 winners all from the BFA in Digital Filmmaking & Video Production program are:
