2020 BisonBison Film Festival: a Student Competition

Get more info about this event »

Description: The 2020 BisonBison Film Festival (BBFF) is April 3 and 4, 2020. Films will be shown the evenings of April 3rd and 4th starting at 7pm. The workshops begin at 10am on Sat. and are free and open to the public. This Festival was started in 2014 to recognize and showcase the work of student filmmakers enrolled in college level programs in Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Missouri and Arkansas (identified as the Mid-America Arts Region by the National Endowment of the Arts). We’re the only stand alone student competition in the region. We have no genre classifications as any work by a student is considered at the same level. We’re especially proud to provide this opportunity for student filmmakers to be a priority, and expose their artistic vision to a diverse audience. At the end of the Festival, three Awards of Excellence of $1,000 each will be presented. We’re providing opportunities for audiences to develop a deeper understanding and appreciation of the art of film. The scientific name for American buffalo is Bison bison. Technically, there are no buffalo on this continent -- “real” buffalo are in Asia and Africa. Those shaggy beasts stampeding across the open prairies of North America are actually bison. Bison bison to be exact. It’s a creature that was important to our heritage, both Native American and European. Despite the shameful mass killings for sport and near extinction of this animal in a century past, it has survived. Artists and independent filmmakers have not been hunted from horseback, but it will take careful nurturing to ensure that thoughtful, educated filmmaking survives. We strive to be a part of that.

Description: For three decades, Samuel Ramey has reigned as one of the music world’s foremost interpreters of bass and bass-baritone operatic and concert repertoire. With his powerful vocalism, exceptional musicianship, elegant stage presence and uncommon theatrical abilities, he commands an impressive breadth of repertoire—from the fioratura of Argante in Handel’s Rinaldo, which was the vehicle of his acclaimed Metropolitan Opera debut in 1984, to the dramatic proclamations of the title role in Bartok’s Bluebeard’s Castle. As the most recorded bass in history, Ramey has more than 80 recordings that span operas, arias, symphonic works, solo recital programs and popular crossover albums, which have garnered him several major awards including three Grammy Awards.
