Here's what I do: organize a big screening at the end of the course.
Organize it right at the beginning. In fact, instruct the students to
organize it, to find a space and to decide what they will make. Have
them invite their friends and family, and make sure it is well
publicized, 2 or 3 or 4 months before the date. Then they will be
really motivated to finish their films.

PS Where did you find the Oxberry? We are looking for one in Paris.
