Senior Liv Dubendorf’s "Find Your Voice" was recently shown twice as a part of the DocUtah Film Festival. The short will also be screened in California at the upcoming Carmel Art & Film Festival, which will also feature junior Baden Piland’s "I Was Meant To Do This." Piland’s documentary will also be a part of the Southern Appalachian International Film Festival.

"Find Your Voice" follows Elon’s all-male a Cappella group as it prepares for its annual spring concert. " I Was Meant To Do This" tells the inspirational story of local musical prodigy Chris Jobe and how he has overcome Cerebral Palsy.

Both short documentaries were produced as a part of the elondocs production program and were featured in Elon University's Cinelon Film Festival, where "I Was Meant to Do This" won the Best Documentary prize.
