Students Present Movies at Annual Film Festival
Check out this year’s student-produced short films at the Providence College Film Festival.
The films, which range in length from 5 to 12 minutes long, will be shown, beginning at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, May 2, in the Angell Blackfriars Theatre in the Smith Center for the Arts.
The festival is sponsored by the Department of Theatre, Dance, and Film. Admission is free and the event is open to the public.
About 12 students will present films, which were created as final projects for the Advanced Video Production course, as well as through the PCTV club.
Members of the Rhode Island film community will serve as jurors, including David Bettencourt of Midway Pictures, Peter Glantz of Imaginary Entertainment, and Jessica Jennings of VisionWink Productions. Prizes will be provided by the Rhode Island International Film Festival.
The films address topics of love, loss, and friendship, including a documentary about the loss of a student’s best friend in a motorcycle accident, and a film that addresses missed opportunities in love when a student mistakenly stops time.
