June 16-19, 2016 – Campus MovieFest, the world’s largest student film festival, hosted the inaugural TERMINUS, a four-day event dedicated to bringing together young creatives and industry professionals for the best of film, TV, and gaming. The event took place at the Marriott Marquis in Downtown Atlanta and at other venues throughout the city.
Launching with a kick-off party hosted by ChooseATL, TERMINUS featured hands-on workshops, educational panels, game design expos, exclusive film and TV screenings, live-play tournaments, awards, chances to rub elbows and network with celebrities and industry leaders, and several more parties.
Ideas United, producers of TERMINUS and creators of Campus MovieFest, chose Atlanta to launch TERMINUS due in large part to the city’s ongoing dedication to supporting and cultivating the entertainment industry. “We are excited to bring the TERMINUS experience to Atlanta, where we started Campus MovieFest 16 years ago," says David Roemer, CEO and cofounder of Ideas United. “We’re thrilled to create an unforgettable opportunity for thousands of students and professionals from across the country that are looking for new ways to create and share with the world.”
Over 23 awards were given out to various TERMINUS participants and contestants, with help from famous actors and comedians like Judah Friedlander, Scott Adsit, Scott Eastwood, and Hannibal Buress. TERMINUS also hosted its very own film festival, feeding from the Campus MovieFests.
