The Poe Film Festival is not currently accepting pitches or scripts other than through the contest format.

Twenty-ninth in a series of articles from our visits to colleges and universities that are invited to participate in the 2018 College Film Awards.

Certainly you recognize The Addams Family theme song. If you did, you’ll remember actor John Astin as Gomez. Mr. Astin was a graduate from the drama department at Johns Hopkins University before becoming a world famous actor of stage and screen. He has taught writing at the University and is so well-respected there, Johns Hopkins named its theatre arts building after him.

Johns Hopkins University, of Baltimore, MD, has a way of turning its students into stars. Look at Wes Craven, Wolf Blitzer, Wes Moore, not to mention Woodrow Wilson and one of our Poe Film Festival directors.

We hope to find the next superstar from Johns Hopkins University at our 2018 College Film Awards. We know you’re out there. All you need to do is submit your short film (for free) on our website starting on April 1.

We’re impressed by this university’s Film and Media Studies program, which incorporates courses in film history, aesthetics, and theory; theory and practice in television, popular culture, and new media; and all aspects of 16mm film and digital video production, including narrative, documentary, animated, and experimental film.

That’s the recipe for excellent student filmmaking, which we expect from Johns Hopkins this fall. Go Blue Jays!
