Extra Credit Adventure Edit

What’s the Extra Credit Edit?

With many folks stuck at home during the pandemic, MOFF’s response was to organize a short film contest in spring 2020 called the EXTRA CREDIT ADVENTURE EDIT.
The filmmaker engagement and creativity was inspiring. Links to watch all finalist films are below on this page (be sure to click on the individual film pages below to watch and read more about each filmmaker). MOFF – and it’s sponsors – awarded $250 to the audience award winner in each category, and $250 to the jury award winner in each category, on May 20.
