Works from the Eisner Competition 2018

Free Admission. Student Filmmakers in Person

We are pleased to present this year’s prizewinners and honorable mentions in the film and video category of the Eisner Prize competition. The Eisner Prize is the highest award for creativity given on the UC Berkeley campus. Expect narratives, documentaries, experimental works, and animations. A handout with written descriptions by the artists will be available at the screening. This annual event, presented at BAMPFA since 1991, provides an opportunity for the filmmakers to meet and share their work with the community; join them!
