Together We _________
Discover? Laugh? Have thesis anxiety dreams? You fill in the blank.

No Princeton is like your Princeton. But you aren’t alone — your experience is made up of the people around you and maybe even those who came before you. We want to see your Princeton, a personal look at the community that lifts you up and ties us together. Show it in a short film that is 90 seconds or less.

Be creative! Videos can be shot on iPhone, GoPro, DSLR, or any device. All styles and genres welcome — animation, documentary, narrative, spoken word, music video, or experimental.

Videos will be judged by Lewis Center Chair Michael Cadden.

Grand prize: Ticket package to the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival
(Additional finalists will have their films shared online.)
