The Eighth Annual MGA Student Fest Awards

Student Film Festival A Success

The Eighth Annual MGA Awards featuring the finalists in the Movie Gallery Student Video Competition gave more than $3,750 in prizes to worthy young filmmakers on March 16, 2005. The awards went to college and high school student directors. Daria Matza’s moving documentary, Keep on Moving, took home first place for the college division and Diana Miernik’s documentary, Keepers of Light, took home first place in the high school division. The students were excited to win not only the monetary prize and the distinguished MGA award trophy, but also the opportunity to have their movies screened before professional filmmakers. Film Festival Director Danielle Williams stated, “The competition this year was unprecedented. Almost 200 students from Nigeria to Alabama entered in hopes of making the final 10.”

The festival kicked off at 5 p.m. with a VIP reception honoring the finalists, judges and others who helped make this year’s film festival a success. The final competition films were played before a packed audience at 7 p.m. Movie Gallery’s continued support of student filmmakers was much appreciated by the winners, the Auburn Film Society and the Department of Communication and Journalism.
