Each year, The Big Muddy Crew opens up submissions to SIUC students for a little event known as The Little Muddy Film Festival. It is a celebration of all the hard work that students have crafted over the year where students can sit back, eat, relax, mingle and watch their peers work. All of the submissions are screened by a jury of SIUC faculty/staff. The best of submitted films are then screened and the best of the best are awarded a variety of prizes hand-picked by The Crew.
The 4th Annual Little Muddy Film and Media Festival took place on April 13, 2018. There were over 50 submissions to the festival between the three categories. 19 films were screened during the festival and the 3 digital art and photo winners were displayed during at opening reception.
Submissions are currently closed for The Little Muddy Film & Media Festival.
