“Visually Wired,” an annual student film festival featuring the work of student filmmakers at The Art Institute of Washington, a branch of The Art Institute of Atlanta, took place on June 1, 2016, at Rosslyn Spectrum in Arlington, Virginia. The films shown were in development since the fall of 2015.
To bring their film projects to life, students first pitched their ideas to a panel of faculty members. Those students selected to move forward then started working on their final products.
“Visually Wired” opened with afternoon preview screenings for the entire campus. In the evening, family and friends were also invited to attend. The screenings featured the creativity of student filmmakers working toward:
• Bachelor of Fine Arts in Digital Filmmaking & Video Production
• Bachelor of Fine Arts or Associate of Arts in Digital Photography, and
• Bachelor of Arts in Audio Production.
The students also took part in a panel discussion featuring industry professionals.
This year was the first time that “Visually Wired” invited Audio Production and Digital Photography students to submit projects into the show. The evening concluded with an awards presentation for the students who won “Best in Show” honors.
