On April 28, 2023, more than 100 students and professors attended a film festival at Appalachian State University that featured original, student-produced short videos.
The App State Accounting Film Festival, held in IG Greer on campus, showcased life as an accounting major, or as an accounting professional, as interpreted by accounting students in the Walker College of Business.
"Our students had no budget and not much time, yet they created amazing short films that will help promote the profession and major," said Accounting Professor Kevin Eller.
The winning video producers, as decided by a panel of accounting firm representatives serving as judges, earned prizes. Also associated with the event was a slogan contest. The best films and slogans are as follows.
