By Matthew Blomberg

KSU 48 Film Festival

Are you posting videos online? Making films? Using music with your projects? It's likely that you use copyrighted content every day. Did you know that even simply posting a photo online can be copyright infringement?

Maximum damages can reach up to $100,000. Join the K-State 48-Hour Film Festival team from 5-6 p.m March 9 in 401 Hale Library to learn simple alternatives and how to navigate the complex web of copyrighted content — without sacrificing creativity and innovation. The workshop is open to all students, but especially those interested in participating in the upcoming film competition. Read more on the event's PDF flier

The K-State 48 Hour Film Festival offers K-State students the opportunity to showcase their work and creativity through the creation of a short film — in only 48-hours.

The kickoff begins at 5:30 p.m. April 6 and ends April 8. The films will be judged by professional filmmakers throughout the Midwest and screened at the festival's exhibition and awards ceremony on April 13. Visit k-state.edu/48filmfest for more information.
