       "Good evening and welcome..."

The Silver Fox Awards is a digital video festival and awards ceremony held on the last weekend of the academic year. Created by Marist professor Jeff Bass, the festival showcases the best student video works of the year. Projects in several categories are nominated and screened, with winners selected by ballot. Over the years, hundreds of students have had their work shown at the Silver Fox Awards, and dozens have taken home trophies. 

Categories include narrative film, documentary film, commercials/PSAs, and music videos.  There are also Silver Fox Awards for Best Actor, Best Actress, and Distinguished Service.
