“Why Film Matters”
In 500-750 words, please discuss a film released in 2012 or 2013 that you believe has relevance. It may be a feature film or documentary, American or foreign. Please tell us why you think this particular film matters and how film, in general, impacts our society. Please do not re-tell the story. The content of your response is more important than the length. You do not need to be a film studies major to enter the contest. The Scholarship Award check will be made out to the college or university you will be attending this Fall.
