Columbia University School of the Arts Film Program presents the 31st Annual Columbia University Film Festival (CUFF), a week-long program of thesis short film screenings, screenplay and teleplay readings. Additional events will take place at the DGA theater on May 15.

“These films reflect the diverse, global perspectives of our filmmakers— from a film about an unexpected connection between two ASL signing artists to a wolf pack of young females seeking revenge to a robot finding his way home across the desert to his creator—our filmmakers bring these stories to life through brilliant scripts and powerful cinema. Over the course of the Festival you’ll see reflected both the depth and breadth of what our students create; we are proud of their remarkable achievements.” – Maureen A. Ryan, Chair, Film Program
