Author: Erik Runyon


The University of Notre Dames 17th annual Student Film Festival will be presented Jan. 20 to 22 (Friday to Sunday) at 7 and 10 p.m. each evening in the Browning Cinema of the DeBartolo Center for the Performing Arts.

Admission is $6 for the general public, $5 for faculty and staff and $3 for students. Tickets are available by calling 574-631-2800 or visiting http://performingarts.nd.edu on the Web.

The approximately 105-minute presentation will exhibit 12 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 intermediate and advanced film and video production courses offered by Notre Dames Department of Film, Television, and Theatre.

From dark comedy to documentary, the films cover a wide range of genres, and include a special Notre Dame student cast starring in the retro 1970s homage to head football coach Charlie Weis, “FLANNER HALL 1974,” which kicks off the festival at each screening.
