*The festival reserves the right to not grant awards in all categories if the merits of the work do rise to standards of expectations.

**Augsburg University educates students to be informed citizens, thoughtful stewards, critical thinkers, and responsible leaders. Students are encouraged to make films with a responsible voice that strives towards excellence in production values and storylines.
