Two bachelor films from FAMU against two bachelor films from FAMO. 4 films, 2 schools, 1 event. This year, it is the fifth time that the popular film school battle took place. Which film will get the most of audience votes and will therefore be awarded as the best film? Are the student films made at different schools similar or completely different? You be the judge. There will be a Q&As session with the authors after the screening – you will have a chance to ask them both about their films and schools.
