Call for Submissions: Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s 2013 Independent Film Festival


The Rehoboth Beach Film Society is pleased to announce the 2012 Morris and Roslyn Fierberg Student Film Award recipients.

First Place is awarded to Sarah Rosen, a 2012 graduate of Yale University, for her charming fantasy short feature Food of Love. The film follows Iris, a shy baker (played by Rosen herself) who lives an exciting fantasy life inspired by the poetry of Shakespeare. The real world intervenes when Iris develops a crush on a regular customer who doesn’t know he’s the star of her Shakespearean dreams. [2012, Runtime: 17 min, USA, Not rated]

Honorable Mention goes to Dan Baxter, a senior at De Sales University, for his tongue-in-cheek documentary short Junk Man. The film profiles inveterate “collector” Ron Bucher as he scavenges, stores and sells roadside refuse and salvaged scraps. While Ron lives the philosophy that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, others—like Ron’s wife—might disagree. [2012, Runtime: 16 min, USA, Not rated]

Rosen receives a $1,000 cash prize, and Baxter receives a $250 gift card. The awards were presented to the winners on November 11, 2012 as part of the Closing Celebration of the Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival.  The two winning films were also included in a Festival screening entitled “New Filmmakers New Films,” spotlighting five noteworthy short films by emerging directors.

Submissions for the 2013 Fierberg Student Awards are now being accepted.  Attached are PDFs of the submission form as well as a color Call for Submissions that we invite you to forward to faculty, colleagues and students. We also hope that you will print out the Call for Submissions and post on your department or office bulletin boards or other high traffic information posting areas.
