The Berkeley Film Friends Announce The BFF Sundance Web Series for Education

Berkeley undergrads are taking on Sundance to film a web series profiling Cal alumni!

Berkeley, CA—November 7, 2015— Berkeley Film Friends, or [BFF], is UC Berkeley’s largest film networking club. Founded in 2010 by Dr. George Larkin while he was a graduate student, BFF is designed to aid the careers of Cal students seeking to work in the entertainment industry. The organization includes more than 1600 members. As a group, they have boosted the careers of countless students, helping them find jobs and internships at The Colbert Report, DreamWorks, Pixar, Paramount, Spike TV, Hulu, and many other places. BFF recently announced an exciting, new web-series documenting Cal alumni and filmmakers at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. For Sundance 2016, they have launched a completely original web series documenting the entire process of their journey to the festival for the benefit of education for other student filmmakers. 

The BFF team has expanded from three to twenty-seven members who do everything from producing to fundraising, camera operating, researching, editing, and reporting. Together, they envision bringing Cal students, professional filmmakers, and artists into a strong and vibrant community of students and alumni to cultivate a culture of mentorship at Sundance. This project serves and embodies The BFF vision of networking and inclusion, as well as their theme, “The knowledge to succeed in this business, should be free and accessible to all.” However, before these twenty-seven UC Berkeley undergrads can make this web series, Berkeley Film Friends need help. That’s why they launched this Kickstarter campaign. The goal of this project is to raise $5,000 by December 3, 2015. The funds raised will go towards housing costs for the full two weeks of the festival. 

To help bring this innovative project to market, please visit the Kickstarter campaign or click here. Perks will be delivered between January 2016 and February 2016. 

Please keep in mind this is an “all-or-nothing” deal, which means if the campaign does not reach the funding goal then the project cannot move forward. So know that any amount given can make a difference, and this is an incredible opportunity to be a part of a special campaign! Help Berkeley Film Friends reach the goal by sharing this on Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks. The more people know about this, the more support the campaign will receive.
