Columbia Undergraduate Film Productions (or CUFP) is a film production club for undergraduate CU students. We are into original student work with serious artistic intent. We make our own films, rent free film equipment, help people with their films outside of the CUFP umbrella, and put on a film festival twice a year featuring Columbia student filmmakers. We hold weekly open meetings at TBA (we’re sorting out our schedules, but check back soon!), so come on over and show us some love!
If you want to make films we’d love to have you. If you have an idea for a film you want to write/direct/produce and are looking for crew or equipment, or you’re running a film event on campus (or off), let us know! You can reach us at cuFilmProductions@columbia.edu.
