(Athens-AP) -- Armed with free digital video cameras and laptops, thousands of Georgia college students are giving filmmaking a try, thanks to the Delta Campus MovieFest.

The festival began at Emory University in 2001. Delta became a sponsor this year, and the contest expanded to other schools including the University of Georgia, where hundreds of students have been shooting their films to meet a Tuesday dateline. Students have a week to make their movie.

The festival culminates in an Oscar-style, red carpet event in Atlanta in April saluting the best from each school. Prizes range from roundtrip tickets on Delta to the possibility of having the film shown on a flight.

Film majors are welcome, but the festival hopes to attract students who may enjoy movies but have never considered directing or starring in one, says David Roemer, who founded the event as an Emory student and now runs the festival. He says that about 80 percent of the teams haven't made movies before.

Students from Georgia Tech, Georgia State University, Clark Atlanta University, Morehouse College, Spelman College and Emory's Oxford College also are participating.
