Author: Shannon Chapla


The University of Notre Dame’s 16th annual Student Film Festival will be presented Jan. 20, 21, 22, 24, 25 and 26 (Thursday through Saturday and Monday through Wednesday) at 7 and 10 each evening in the new, state-of-the-art Michael Browning Family Cinema in the Marie P. DeBartolo Center for the Performing Arts.

Admission is $3 for Notre Dame students, $5 for faculty and staff, and $6 for the general public. Tickets are available at the DeBartolo Center box office by calling 574-631-2800.

The 118-minute presentation will screen 18 short features that represent the film and video work of Notre Dame students training for careers in film and television. Each film was completed in about two months, as a component of the four film and video production courses offered by Notre Dame’s Department of Film, Television and Theatre.
