Beauty Queen is the result of a collaboration between three universities' top film and video students.

BEAUTY QUEEN is the story of a teenage girl who wishes to enter a beauty pageant...but develops alopecia, a condition that causes her hair to fall out. She befriends a wig shop owner and seeks the inner strength to go forward with the pageant.

The Michigan Creative Film Alliance is an exciting, joint venture between three top research universities: Michigan State University, University of Michigan, and Wayne State University. These universities proposed a historic, innovative, collaborative alliance to drive talent and resources toward the creation and sustainment of an indigenous film community across the state. This collaboration begins with a one-semester class for select students of the three universities. These students have the opportunity to create a short film, utilizing their own talents and skills while being mentored by top instructors in the field.
