There are just a few hours left to become a member of DAFT, sponsor of the longest running student film festival in the nation.  We're a 501c3 non-profit and your contribution is deductible under IRS guidelines.  And this year we are seeking major corporate partners to increase our scholarships and prizes to help foster more filmmakers such as Monster University director Dan Scanlon of Clawson, Oscar-winning special effects wizard Doug Chiang of Wayne-Westland, Emmy-winning producer Kathy Vander of Southfield and Rochester's Doug Blush, editor of the 2014 Academy Award winner Twenty Feet from Stardom.

Student membership is available for just $25 over the next 5 days at this special link--and it includes an entry in the April 23, 2015 Michigan Student Film Festival at the DIA's fabulous Detroit Film Theatre.

Adult membership is $50 and also includes a transferable entry for a student.  Your school or company can become an Institutional Member for $150 and sponsor 3 student entries!
