Congratulations to the winners of the 2018 BEA Student Clubs Film 48 Student Film Festival! Special thanks to all 28 (twenty-eight) teams who competed in the #BEAfilm48 held the weekend of November 2-4, 2018. 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 Steven King Novel, a character named Michael Abraham, and a line of dialog “Why are we always going around in circles with this issue.” Winning teams will receive certificates and have their film screened during the annual BEA Conference in Las Vegas.
