About the Film Festival Awards
ASCRS established the Film Festival awards in 1982 to honor the best filmmakers in ophthalmology. All MDs, including residents and fellows, were invited to submit film entries.
The festival has 10 categories and for each, a winner and runner-up will be chosen. Among them, two will be recognized as Best of the Best; and one Grand Prize winner will be selected.
A team of nine panelists will judge the submitted films based on applicability/education value, originality, scientific content/validity, clarity, cinematic quality and artistic effects. The winning producers will be announced at a ceremony on Monday, May 9.
