Announcing the 2016 Little Muddy Film and Media Festival


With another successful Big Muddy Film Festival in hindsight, it’s now that time of year again where we celebrate the work of the students of our own university. The Little Muddy Film and Media Festival is an annual event put on by us, the Big Muddy Crew, to showcase the work of SIUC’s undergraduate and graduate student-artists. This year’s event will take place on Friday April 29 at 7 P.M. in the Guyon Auditorium of SIU’s Morris Library. We encourage one and all to come out and enjoy a screening of submitted films, a showcase of submitted photography and digital art, and a reception after the program with food provided by Quatros Pizza. The event is entirely free and open to all.

If you are a current SIUC undergraduate or graduate student and you have short films of 10 minutes or less, photography, or digital art ready for presentation, the Little Muddy is a great opportunity to showcase your work to others in your field and the public. Submission is free, all submissions are generally shown, and your work will be judged by our SIU faculty jurors for the potential to win prizes. Awards will be given to the top 3 best films, best photograph, and best digital art piece, as decided by the jurors.
