THE RESULTS ARE IN! Thank you to everyone who made #susff2018 an enormous success! We want to congratulate the winners in each category, and to everyone who came out last Friday - we’ll see you next year! #salisburyfilm #filmfestival #film
We’re just TWO DAYS away from the festival! Here’s the lineup for the day - we’ve built in two 10 minute breaks for everyone to get some air, stretch, snack, etc. and we’ve also built in two Q&A sessions for the filmmakers as well! We hope you’re just as excited as we are! #salisburyfilm #susff2018 #filmfestival
Can you believe it?! It’s our last #mondaymotivation before the festival!! We’ve been working unbelievably hard to make this one of the best festivals we’ve ever hosted, and we’re all absolutely positive you’re going to witness something truly special! The festival starts at 1PM this FRIDAY (MAY 4TH). We’ll see you there! #salisburyfilm #susff2018 #wesanderson #fantasticmrfox
Only two more #mondaymotivation posts before the festival! Where did all the time go?! Today’s quote comes from #peterjackson, which perfectly applies to each of the filmmakers who submitted entries to the festival. Each director brought such a fiery passion and dedication to their projects, and we can’t wait for you all to see them! Only two more weeks!! #salisburyfilm #susff2018 #lotr #filmmaking
THAT’S A WRAP! Today was the late deadline for submissions to #susff2018, and notification emails have been sent out! We thank you all so much for your entries - we received over 80 OF THEM, more than triple the amount from last year! As such, it was incredibly difficult to pick only a few to have in our festival, but we’re confident you’ll be blown away. The festival will be held on MAY 4TH from 1-5PM in FULTON HALL ROOM 111 - we hope to see you all there! #salisburyfilm #officialselection #film
Our #mondaymotivation this week is dedicated to the memory of Milos Foreman and R. Lee Ermey, who both unfortunately passed away this weekend.
“The stream flows,
The wind blows,
The cloud fleets,
The heart beats,
Nothing will die.”
- Alfred Tennyson

Film at Salisbury University
Free screening for students!--tomorrow, Sunday, April 8, 2.30pm, Fulton Hall 111
Do you love cinema, poetry, and cinema AS poetry!
Come witness the great poet Emily Dickinson in Terence Davies' film A QUIET PASSION. It's a story of truth, kindness, tremendous loss and incredible feeling. The film is a kind of miracle of detail, not least for starring Cynthia Nixon from Sex and the City in the lead role--seriously, she's amazing! Dr. Elsie Walker (Associate Professor of Film Studies at SU) and Dickinson specialist Dr. Diana Wagner (Associate Professor of Education) will briefly introduce the film and host a discussion afterwards if you'd like to stick around. The event is hosted by the Salisbury Film Society, and FREE to students with ID. (Tickets are $9 for other attendees, $8 for Salisbury Wicomico Arts Council members, and $20 for 4-film season ticket-holders.)
Our #mondaymotivation is a little different this week. Yesterday was the regular deadline for film submissions, and we are so excited to announce that we’ve received over 60 submissions this year! That’s nearly TRIPLE our submissions from last year! That’s more than enough motivation in our eyes! You guys are amazing, your films are amazing, and we can’t wait for May 4th! If you weren’t able to get your submission in on time, no need to worry - just shoot us a message on any of our social media accounts by APRIL 20th and we’ll take care of it! #salisburyfilm #susff2018 #film #filmfestival
#readyplayerone opens this weekend, so here’s your #mondaymotivation from the legend himself. Regular deadline for #susff2018 is less than a week away! Stay tuned for our official poster reveal coming next week! #salisburyfilm #stevenspielberg
80 degrees, a great view, and an even better read. Shoutout to Salisbury’s very own Dr. Elsie Walker for her newest publication on director Michael Haneke! We’re all very proud of her hard work. Be sure to check it out if you have the chance! #salisburyfilm #susff2018 #springbreak
It may be spring break, but we’re still coming at you with our #mondaymotivation posts!
A little late on our #mondaymotivation, but we’ll blame it on daylight savings. The earlybird deadline is this Friday - be sure to get your submissions in! #salisburyfilm #susff2018

“The diversity in this year’s slate is more than we have ever had.

Festival Director Lee Anderson says programming this year’s slate through the theme of Voices Strong. Minds Open. made every selection more meaningful, fitting and moving. “Our hope is to spark really smart conversations and impact the way people think and feel, for the better.”
The film debuting for its U.S. premiere is The Miracle Season, directed by Sean McNamara and starring Helen Hunt as the coach of a volleyball team who must unite the team in hopes of winning the state championship in the wake of the tragic death of a star player. The four films making their East Coast premiere include Beirut; Come Sunday, directed by Joshua Marston and starring Marin Sheen and Chiwetel Ejiofor as real-life American evangelical preacher Carlton Pearson, who risks everything when he questions church doctrine and is branded a modern-day heretic; Hearts Beat Loud, directed by Brett Haley and starring Nick Offerman as a record store owner, who is forced to close his shop, and decides to form a band with his college-bound daughter; and documentary Three Identical Strangers, directed by Tim Wardle, which follows the incredible true story of triplets who learned of one another's existence only at age 19, their initial joy giving way to increasingly unsettling discoveries.
In addition to award-winning features, AFF has made its mark now in its sixth year by continually bringing a lineup of compelling short films. Two shorts that screened at last year’s AFF landed on the Oscar’s Shortlist for Best Live Action Shorts, with DeKalb Elementary still contending for the Oscar at the upcoming 90th Academy Awards.
This year AFF is serving up an outstanding roster of short films, including several Academy Award nominees. For a complete list of the shorts, go to the lineup: http://annapolisfilmfestival.com/alphabetical-film-list/. All films in the slate will compete for the Best of the Fest, held Sun. March 25, where awards will be given out to top narrative and documentary feature films, as well as top narrative and documentary shorts, and top films will be rescreened for audiences.

Ocean City, Maryland's second annual film festival will be held on March 9 - 11, 2018 . The festival showcases the works of regional and international filmmakers of every background and genre....
Our #mondaymotivation quote comes from the #oscars Best Director winner himself. In a time where to be different is to be ridiculed or isolated, Guillermo has paved a path for unique, fantastical stories to be told, and we at #susff2018 have nothing but respect and appreciation for his work. Congratulations @realgdt! #salisburyfilm
Predictions were pretty solid from our director Logan Wilson. It was a tough year to pick any one film more deserving than another, which is to say it was an absolutely stellar year in filmmaking. Congratulations to all the Oscar winners tonight, and to all filmmakers out there... you’re up next. #oscars #salisburyfilm #susff2018

Women’s History Month Film
SU’s annual Women’s History Month celebration begins with a screening of the 2005 PBS documentary Sisters of ’77 at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 6, in Fulton Hall Room 111. A roundtable discussion follows. The film chronicles the progression of women’s rights in the U.S. since the first federally funded National Women’s Conference in November 1977, which drew a crowd of 20,000 to address issues including equal pay, daycare, healthcare, minority rights, abortion, lesbian rights and workplace discrimination. Interviews with influential women’s leaders such as Betty Friedan, Gloria Steinem, Ann Richards and Coretta Scott King are featured. Sponsored by SU’s Fulton Public Humanities Committee, admission is free and the public is invited.

Film Society Screening
The Salisbury Film Society (SFS) presents the 2016 movie Carrie Pilby 2:30 p.m. Sunday, March 4, in Room 111 of Salisbury University’s Fulton Hall. Starring Bel Powley, Nathan Lane and Jason Ritter, the film is an adaptation of the eponymous coming-of-age novel by Caren Lissner. The story follows a 19-year-old genius (Powley) who, taking the advice of her therapist (Lane), begins making friends and dating men who challenge her beliefs in an attempt to better fit in with society. Leslie Yarmo of SU’s Music, Theatre and Dance Department leads a discussion following the screening. Yarmo served as the film’s costume designer. Upon her recommendation, four SU students also worked as interns during filming, providing them with rare hands-on industry training. The Salisbury Film Society series is co-sponsored by the Salisbury Wicomico Arts Council (SWAC) and SU’s Charles N. Fulton School of Liberal Arts. Tickets are $9, $8 for SWAC members, free for college and university students with ID.

Excuse the #doublepost, but we couldn’t forget about our #mondaymotivation post! Today’s quote comes from Jim Jarmusch - hopefully it will inspire all you filmmakers out there with your submissions! We can’t wait to see them! #salisburyfilm #susff2018
“Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination... Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic.”
- Jim Jarmusch

This just in from Prof. Leslie Yarmo: a not-to-be-missed interview!!!--seating will be limited and only for those there on time
"For those students and faculty who are interested in joining us, the film producer, director, and creator of New Line Cinema, Bob Shaye, has agreed to speak (via Skype) to the cast of Hairspray next Tuesday the 27th from 6pm to 6:30 (just a 1/2 hour) in Fulton 203.
In brief, Shaye created New Line Cinema in 1967 and was the producer of numerous John Waters’ movies including the original Hairspray and the more recent musical versions. But he might be more well known for other films he produced including the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise, the Austin Powers film series, Boogie Nights, The Wedding Singer, Blade, Rush Hour, and The Lord of the Rings trilogy!
The talk will take place in Fulton 203. Depending on turn out, it might get quite cozy:).
I do not believe that Shaye is not known for guest speaking appearances, so this is truly a rare opportunity for those of you who can attend."
