Ithaca College Students Win At CellFlix Film Fest

Written by Bryan Roth '07

Zack Wilson ’07 was recently announced as the winner of the Judge’s Prize at the second CellFlix Film Festival at Ithaca College. The nationwide film festival offers student filmmakers the chance to win $5,000 by creating a 30-second film shot entirely on a cell phone.

Wilson’s film, “Assisted Living,” takes place in a nursing home and contrasts an elderly patient with her young nurse. The winning film took about 90 minutes to set up and shoot with another 10 hours to edit.

A new edition to this year’s competition was the Texas Instruments Audience Award, an additional $5,000 prize for the top film selected by voting through the contest’s website. The recipient, Billy Feldman ’08, entered “Shellfish,” a film based on a comic strip he drew about a life-size lobster.
