Every spring term a prestigious team of faculty evaluate submissions to determine the best film studies essay of the year. To be eligible, essays must be written by a current film major or minor while a student at PSU. Close-reading, analysis essays, as well as research essays of any length, are considered. The winners are awarded cash prizes, and winning entries will be presented on the School of Film Student Showcase starting June 7, 2021.
