Film & Video Makers at Cal: Works from the Eisner Competition 2020


    Dec 11, 2020

    The Eisner Prize is the highest award for creativity given on the UC Berkeley campus. This online edition of the annual Eisner competition screening, presented at BAMPFA since 1991, features this year’s prizewinner and honorable mentions in the film and video category. It offers an opportunity to see a wide range of work made by UC Berkeley students, from narratives and documentaries to experimental and essay films. The winner of the 2020 prize, Yijian Shan, describes her film Room 3225 as “a film shot in the very small space of a room with the two main characters improvising in front of the camera. . . The film digs deeply into the notion of ‘room’ . . . for an exploration of the state of existence during the pandemic.”  

    A recording of the livestream conversation and Q&A with the UC Berkeley student filmmakers is available HERE
