The Public Domain Film and Music Festival is an annual event that celebrates copyrighted works entering the public domain. As of January 2020, all works published in 1924 will officially enter the public domain. We hope to encourage student creators to gain a better copyright understanding by providing opportunities to work with these public domain materials. We welcome students from all majors to participate in the festival to compete for up to $3000 in prizes. We also encourage anyone interested in the event to attend our free public screening.
