POV is a two-night film festival produced collectively by students of the three-year UBC Film Production Program. It is the first public premiere of their films. Students raise sponsorship interest from local businesses to provide awards in many categories. Judged by a panel of industry professionals, the winning films are announced on the second night.
There were twenty-three short films this year: sixteen from the 4th year students in the program, and seven from the 3rd year students in the program.
They featured a range of stories about friendship, betrayal, compassion and coming of age, and promise a mix of comedy and drama.
The breadth and learning experience of the films is also felt in the wide range of shooting formats; DSLR, Black Magic Cinema Camera, RED Epic and Sony FS-700 were all employed by the students. Huge kudos to all our students who fullfiled all the key technical, creative and marketing roles in bringing POV 2014 onto the screen.
