Columbia University Film Festival
This year marks our first ever hybrid festival, and we are thrilled to have you with us. CUFF will host in-person screenings and events in New York City and offer dozens of festival films online, available worldwide. This year promises to be a festival as global, creative, and inspiring as the Columbia MFA students whose work we showcase.
Join us for the virtual portion of the festival from May 5 to 16 where you can watch a selection of the 2022 films from the comfort of your own home. More details will be available soon.
All told, the festival slate will include:
The return of our signature in-person events, Awards Night (May 15) and Screenwriting Night (May 16).
42 in-competition short films, all screening for free at the Lenfest Center for the Arts. Most titles will also be available online.
17 out-of-competition short films from our 2021 virtual festival, also screening for free.
One VR project, available to experience at the Lenfest Center for the Arts.
From May 5-16, the Columbia Film community will come together to watch, network, laugh, and celebrate the very best of our program.
