Monday, Feb. 23 at 7 p.m.,TU’s Department of Film will host its 7th annual Spring Film Festival.
The film festival is one of three hosted by the film department each year. All films in the festival were written, directed and produced by TU students within the past year. Any student can enter a film at the Spring Film Festival, regardless of their association with the film department.
According to Ashley Etter, of the Office of Film Studies, the Spring Film Festival is the “Oscars” for TU. It is the largest and most juried festival. Judges not associated with the department view and rank each film before showing.
Prizes for Best Film and Runner-Up, Best Original Score, Best Actor, and Audience Choice will be awarded. Last year’s winners included “Forgery” by Isaac Holton, “The Highway” by Casey Stack and “Too Deep” by Steven McDonald.
This year, six student films were entered, with a total running time of 59 minutes. The films range in genre, as there are no genre specifications to enter the festival.
