We are pleased to recognize the winning entries from the inaugural BEA Student Clubs Film 48 student film festival. Twenty teams completed in the #BEAfilm48 held the weekend of November 10th-12th. Each team was assigned a specific genre to use for their film. The teams were also assigned three “production constants” that had to appear in each #BEAfilm48 —a left shoe, a character named Raven Fireswallow, and a line of dialog “This isn’t how I planned my Thursday morning.” Winning teams will receive certificates and have their film screened during the annual BEA Conference in Las Vegas.
