First Look is an industry showcase of selected works by EMC students. We invite media professionals to a screening at a theatrical venue in Nashville along with our students, faculty, and their guests. The event includes a display of student photography, an exhibit of student-produced New Media projects, and a one-hour screening of student films and videos.

The screening of films and videos is limited to about one hour to make it work for busy professionals. The goal is to create interest in EMC students and their work. The one-hour time frame limits what can be included, so very few films can be shown in their entirety. Selections are made based upon what will deliver the most compelling screening to the professional guests. A Vimeo site will set for items accepted for inclusion in the screening, and this site will include full-length submissions whenever possible.

Rules & Terms

Submissions must be the work of EMC students and produced after the Spring 2015 semester. Examples include class projects, personal projects, film festival projects, freelance work, etc.
