WHAT IS SEEKER?
Seeker is a digital network for a new generation of bright and curious minds; an invitation to share openly, evolve understanding, experiment often, and to concede that knowledge is fleeting. We explore everyday questions and provide context for those who are constantly curious about the world around us.
WHAT IS CAMPUS MOVIEFEST?
Campus MovieFest (CMF), the world’s largest student film festival, began in 2001 when four students at Emory University provided fellow students with everything they needed — including camcorders and Apple laptops — to make a movie in one week. Today CMF is a premier outlet for the next generation of filmmakers, giving more than one million students at colleges and universities worldwide the chance to tell their stories through film. Thanks to corporate partners and schools, CMF is completely free for students.
HOW DO ENTRIES FOR THE SEEKER STORIES CATEGORY DIFFER FROM THE TYPICAL CMF FILMS?
Entries for the Seeker Stories category must be documentary-based and loosely fit Seeker’s category focuses of either World, Science or Exploration (overlap is acceptable).
