Minneapolis, MN - Doxa, the Greek word for "glory," is the annual student documentary film festival at North Central University. The 2014 Festival takes place April 24 and is sponsored by the Department of Communication Arts within the College of Arts and Sciences and the NCU Film Collective, the student film club.
“Last year the festival screened 12 great students documentaries,” said Todd Wold, Chair of the Communication Arts Department. “We’re excited to have another dozen films for this year, as well as further establish DOXA as a great Spring tradition at NCU.”
The mission of the festival is to showcase student films that endeavor to document aspects of God's glory within the stories and subjects depicted. The Doxa festival provides a forum for NCU student filmmakers to showcase and be rewarded for documentary filmmaking that features unique narratives demonstrating God’s glory in life and mission.
Official Selections screened at the festival compete for three awards: The Istoria best-in-show award, the Zontanos audience award, and the jury award.
The Doxa14 Festival takes place April 24, starting at 2 p.m. The NCU Small Chapel/ Theater screenings begin at 2 p.m., followed by a short break for audience award voting and then the main awards program. This year a giant logo backdrop will decorate a Hollywood-style photo spot in the lobby where filmmakers and audience members can pose for pictures at the event.
Admission is free. Movie concessions will be available for sale.
