Finalists in the Public Domain Film and Music Festival will have their video entries played publicly at a free screening event and after-party on February 18th at 7 pm in the Varsity Theater.

At this event, we will announce the winners, hand out prizes and trophies, and enjoy refreshments. We will have photographers and photo opportunities and encourage attendees to dress in semi-formal or formal attire to embrace the 1920s, the time period from which we have drawn public domain works.

We will also hold a live vote at this event to determine which finalist entry will be awarded the Audience Choice Award. Teams are encouraged to invite friends and family to come and vote for their film.
