Created in 2010, Rough Cut takes place each year and welcomes the participation of schools throughout New York City and beyond.
Students are free to create films on any school appropriate subject; the only requirement is that the films are less than ten minutes long.
A jury of faculty, students and film professionals give out four awards: Best Animated Short, Best Documentary Short, Best Narrative Short, and Best Experimental Short. The audience also votes for its favorite movie!
