The Athens International Film and Video Festival was founded in 1974, and since then has presented independent films from around the world. The Festival is sponsored by the Athens Center for Film and Video, a project of the College of Fine Arts at Ohio University.
The competition process:
Each year, a Prescreening Committee comprised of artists, students, and community activists watch all the films and videos entered in the competition.
After all entries have been watched, the prescreeners vote on which films to include in public screenings. A majority (if not unanimous!) vote is required to include a work in the Festival.
Cash prizes are awarded by guest jurors, in four categories: documentary, experimental, narrative, and animation. Festival Jurors will be announced just prior to the Festival. Awards will be announced on the final day of the Festival.
The Black Bear Award
In honor of our friend and mentor, John Butler, the Festival has initiated the Black Bear Award. This $ 500 prize will go to the film/video that demonstrates the best use of sound.
To date, contributors to the Black Bear Award include:
Professional Sound Service & Rich Topham, Charlie Humphrey, Charles Clift, David Descutner
